Faces and creatures that sometimes appear my photography are back. In this post – the second time I’ve featured pareidolia – I’m taking a different look. Not all photos I take have the potential for hidden characters and not everybody is sensitive to seeing such. Some never get it. From a distance though, such pareidolia images become more apparent to most viewers. So in this series I’ve amplified what I perceive, to make my vision more apparent for all with an open mind.
The technique is undeniably composite. But the base images were a beginning – a suggestion of a certain creation, in keeping to the faces or creatures I perceived within in the photo. The creative process of suggesting a new narrative while maintaining detail in the imagery is very satisfying to me.

“I see the shot as a beginning, as an image I can get ‘painterly’ with – giving it visual richness, abstracting it, or making it more conceptual.
As darkroom technique has always been an essential part of the photographer’s mastery of imagery – Photoshop is my darkroom. This process of post-production enhancement completes my relationship with the image.”
