A stormy sky brews in the background of this rocky beach. Someone, maybe more than one being, has left prints in the sand mostly moving away from the crustacean infested rocks.
This photograph is part of my Sci-Fi Landscapes series. We don't know for certain that this image shows a scene from Earth. We don't know if the being, or beings, who left the prints were human. It appears that these are human prints, but do we know that species from other worlds do not have similar footprints?...We don't. We also don't know why this being was at the beach, or what lies beyond the huge, dark colored stones is there an ocean on the other side, more rocks, more sand, other people...creatures? We don't know the answers to these questions either. This is a mysterious and emotionally-flavored landscape that leaves us with more questions than answers, and that's the way I wanted it to be.
Nawfal Johnson Nur, Malaysia Member Since September 2006 Artist Statement IMAGEKIND: ARTIST BIO — Nawfal Johnson — Smokephotographist 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.
