Avril Kirby 2019

I have been involved with photography for the past 16 years, gradually changing from taking straight photos to using photography as artistic expression.  Photography as an artistic medium combines that instant of recognition with the fascinating process of decision-making and imaginative thinking afterwards. The more I work on a photograph the more personal it feels. Lately layered photography has been my focus for the creative freedom and excitement it gives me to be able to take two or more disparate images and make a piece with a different feeling than any of the individual components. This year a clear-cut across the road from my house has inspired my choice of subject.
