Description Title: 'FOOTSTEPS IN THE SAND, v3, Edit F.'Series: OFF WORLD - ALIEN LANDSCAPES.Series History: 2001 to Present (On-going!) :^)The question I always want to ask myself when I look at this art piece is this: 'Who made these footprints in the sand?' Then, I'm led to the question: 'Where is this?' Because this is part of my 'OFF WORLD - ALIEN LANDSCAPES' Photographic Art Series, then, I ask myself, 'The footprints appear human-like, but this is somewhere else...some other planet, so what do these people, aliens...creatures really look like?' 'Is this a beach, or is this some rocky desert-planet that has been abandoned by its inhabitants?' Of course, I am asking that you use your imagination, and that requires you to ask questions for yourself about what you see.
Nawfal Johnson Nur, Penang, Malaysia Member Since September 2006 Artist Statement IMAGEKIND: ARTIST BIO — Nawfal Johnson Nur — My Photographist Beginnings: When I pick up my camera ... when I compose the subjects in the frame ... and, when I plan and set up my lighting, I have one thing in mind — To take a better photograph than the last time.
I have been using a camera as a hobbyist since I was 12 years old, and then as a freelance professional since 1998.
Photography is a Madness for Me — My Work: I have been a long-time Freelance Stage & Dance Photographer; nevertheless, I focus much of my energy designing fine art Abstract, and, Abstract Expressionism Photography. I also design SMOKE-ART PHOTOGRAPHY, and that is the art style I focused on in my 2011 book, titled, ETHEREAL DREAMS and HOPE.
My Artistic Influences: My main artistic influences are Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. As for photographic influences, I have always drawn inspiration from Carl Fischer, and Andreas Feininger.
