DescriptionThis is The Louvre, Paris. One of my favourite buildings on this planet and of course, the home of Mona Lisa. This is an old image. I captured it back in 2008 when I was travelling around for a few months. Its been sitting on my computer ever since, apparently useless to me.. Its great when you look back over old photos with new eyes, new techniques and skills for manipulation and see a photo transform in front of your eyes :)
Andrew Paranavitana, Melbourne Member Since November 2010 Artist Statement My work often takes two avenues of theme: a darker, sometimes scary world of unseen nightmares, and a nostalgic playground of warm memories, much safer and happier than the former.
I have always looked further than traditional methods of photography. Digital manipulation has allowed me to communicate and share my view of the world. I have a need to lace my work with elements of obscure visions and deliver a piece the viewer can connect with on multiple levels.
There is one general thing to remember with photographic art: Look Up. You miss so much at eye level only.
..Andrew Paranavitana is an independent photographic artist. His driving passion for photography began in 1994. Andrew’s vision today is to capture the world as we know it, and present it in a way that we may not..
