Description After three weeks of overcast days and rainy weather in Sri Lanka, we finally saw the sun. This was shot from the rooftop of our apartment in Dehiwela, Colombo.I was amazed at the levels of clouds present as the sun made its way closer to the horizon. Thick black storm clouds formed as they came in from the ocean, while other clouds travelled around the setting sun.I was awe struck, and partially blinded from shooting directly into the sun for 45 minutes. (Do not try this at home).
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.
