japonisme

22 July 2007

i began to experiment with overlaying my own mountain, water, cloud photographs, with some from the japanese masters. here are some results.



if you click on the images to see them larger, you'll see who i'm combined with.






i have been doing what i call 'woodblock fotos' for a while now;

sometimes the images are combined with those, sometimes with straight photographs.



one has actually seemed to have disappeared from my hard drive! so i'm hunting it....
