The Dragon

Compact print 1 C

The dragon 

This is an image I am considering for submission to an exhibition of Compact Prints. The prints are required to be square, and to fit into a standard CD case. It is the first image I’ve made for a long time that has got no X-ray in it, but somehow no matter what I did, it didn’t seem to work.

The picture is derived from a single photograph consisting of bleached driftwood in bright sunlight. The textural patterns derive from splits in the wood. The shapes from light and shadows playing on the surface.

    I find it intriguing that you couldn’t work an X-ray into the image, not knocking it, just intrigued. Love the dragon by the way.

    It does work Tony and have the “feel” of an X-ray image……well done!
