Distractural is a word I thought of when describing the aim of these images
– to be distracted by nature. There are times when I’d like to be instantly transported from my current mood, to be mesmerised and calmed by the sight of something familiar yet mysterious that reveals different facets each time I look at it.
Mirroring certain photographs I’d taken created symmetrical images resembling faces or animals or a variety of different illusions the longer I looked. So it seemed that by giving natural objects a personality people might be encouraged to stop and give them a second look, and then find more to discover in nature itself.
I hope you will too.
