DescriptionI was at the Polly Woodside a few weeks ago . We spent a good few hours on board the ship, taking shots of everything we could get close enough to. This was the first Lensbaby shoot with my new glass optic, so things got out of control!The Polly Woodside is a historical experience, with all the ships below deck rooms acting as one massive still life. Imagine the excitement of three photographers seeing this for the first time :)This triptych was taken from a photo on board the ship. The Lensbaby really created a dreamy-lost-in-the-ocean feel.
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.
