Beneath the Surface II (2016)

Jonathan Michael Ray

122 x 168 cm | 45 x 62 in

Subject: Nature

Limited edition digital c-type (gloss) photographic print, mounted on aluminium with wooden subframe. Total edition of 5+AP.

"Beneath the Surface is a series of photographic prints made from hedgerows in my home village in Buckinghamshire, UK, without the use of a “camera”. Instead, these blown-up images were taken using a hi-res flatbed scanner outdoors in the dead of the night. With a direct connection to analogue cameraless processes such as photograms and even the work of Susan Derges, with respect, the purpose of this work is to take the attention away from these more traditional processes and bring it up to date into our age of digital reproduction."
