“From iPhoneography to Fellowship: My Continuing Journey”
Viveca is making a return visit to Midhurst, this time with her second presentation which follows on from “Urban Exploration to Fine Art: A Photographic Journey”.
In this presentation Viveca will discuss her use of an iPhone to take photographs, leading up to the separate challenge of attaining her Fellowship with the Royal Photographic Society using illustrations from a book of poetry and prose entitled “Star Blossom”, in which her images became more abstract and, in some cases, a little surreal, using multiple layers, textures and double exposures, whilst using the written words as her inspiration.
With the use of camera phones being on the rise, it coincided with Viveca’s quest to find a new way to express herself photographically. She experimented with the phone, almost to the exclusion of her DSLR, shooting many photographs in square format.
Viveca is a self-taught Fine Art photographer and sees potential images everywhere, often things that many seem to miss or simply pass by. Abandoned buildings, the details of places, the minutiae that collects in hidden corners, and the small parts of bigger things.
