Fine Art Photography
From time to time I create images in the fine art photography genre to allow me to explore God’s creation and express something of beauty, or interest to me. This past Spring I spent a little time with my image catalog of things I had photographed and tried something new; composite photography. In each of these three images, O took several items I had photographed in the past several years and combined them to help tell a story of significance to me. The three pieces have a common theme; the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as given in the Christian faith. So, that means there are some common elements in the photographs. The images are now on display at the Open Doors Gallery of the Hill Country Bible Church in NW Austin.
Here are a few words about each:
Christian communion can be a very solemn and formal celebration, as we remember our Lord’s ultimate sacrifice for us. Photographs from several Maundy Thursday and Good Friday celebrations are combined to emphasize the Love Jesus poured out on us in His death on the cross.
Worship is a focus on Who is at the center of our affection, transcending our acts of singing, playing instruments, dancing and motion. This composite brings several elements together to show our worship even as it combines with the heavenly angels around the throne of God in magnificent color and glory.
Here are some of the elements that might be found in a Christian remembrance of Christ’s suffering on the cross, celebrated in communion; the bread, wine, the cross, prayer and quiet.
And here are the images. Each is a framed 11×14 print in a 16×20 mat.
