FINE ART PHOTO PRINTS BANGKOK 2010
Urban Nocturnes / Bangkok Nights
On moving downtown from the rustic river community outside Bangkok I became fascinated with the expressive qualities
of the High -tech glittering glass and steel sky-scapers seen as 'found object' abstract painting of the late-modernist /
Optical styles, but on photographing seemingly static objects like buildings I found their beauty was a fast moving action
shot, when light and reflections from clouds and nearby infrastructure illuminate and transmit poignant symbols and
revelations of the viewers inner feeling in moments when the city itself seems to wish to communicate beauty like a gift;
an oracular vision, or insight, to those who look and feel carefully. Bangkok as magic mirror, carpet and crystal ball.
Reflections and emotive contrasts by day with illuminated visions at night and in the surface 'skin' of Bangkok City.
