Micky Thompson @ the Bear

As a photographer, I have been exploring the subject of Forest and how that subject affects me on an emotional level since early 2015. I chose it as my theme for Marlborough Open Studios in 2016 and have been continuing my investigation of the subject to the present time.
The original image capture is for me the starting point. It is important that the composition conveys how the forest affects me.
Having an arts school graphics training has left me with a certain way of viewing the world and many viewing my work for the first time do not recognise my images as photographs at all. Using a powerful computerised tool box I manipulate form, colour palate and contrast to create the finished piece often blending different versions of the same image and cutting through layers to give greater emphasis to certain elements. The resultant works are offered in small number limited editions.
