Janet Dwyer strikes again

But not too heavily, otherwise she would crash all the deicate things she scanns !!

Janet is a long time member of our site. She sent me beautiful images that I recently added to her page. I've not much more to say that : go and take a look, it's worth the few minutes. Thank you Janet for your fidelity.

Chad Kleitsch : papers and botanicals

Finally some new things on our site !! I'm sorry I had no time before but I had hundreds of illustrations to create in the last 5 months.

So. Here we are presenting you a formidable photographer who is now working in scannography. The works Chad Kleitsch presents us here are divided in two parts. The first is the classical scannography theme : flowers and leaves, simply presented but in a perfect way. The second theme is much more personal, in my humble opinion. Chad works with papers, scanning letters, enveloppes, receipts but with an incredible lightning which gives almost live to those papers. Chad seems to have thought a lot about his way of doing things and the result is very sensitive and emotional. Here is an extract of his statement, which I find very relevant : "For some primordial reason when a new image making process or technique is created we innocently throw nature onto its surface, as some kind of ongoing test. Perhaps looking to see if it can match our own perceptual abilities and/or move beyond it."

I hope you like that new artist and you can also take a look at his own website here.
