Algis Kemezys and his Preraphaelite flowers…
Our new artist on scannography.org,
Algis kemezys, is well-known photographer who creates scannographies since
years now.He explain his work :
"I called them PreRaphaelite because they follow the "rules" of those mid-nineteenth century poets and painters. They have unconventional compositions (unlike any flower arrangements I have ever seen in photos or paintings); there are pyramidal groupings (stacking); there is of necessity more light on one side of the image than the other, causing an unnatural depiction of the subjects; and there is absolutely a great emphasis on shadow and tone to let the colours fend for themselves and work within the structure of the image."
His images are colored in a very special way, like no other. The strange emanations coming out and slipping through the images, give a sense of weirdness and a strength to Algis's creations. If you want to know more about this artist, he gives a lot of informations on his own blog.
