“A Photographer’s Perspective: My Life Through a Lens “
Viveca’s third lecture follows on from her first two – ‘Urban Exploration to Fine Art: A Photographic Journey’ and ‘iPhoneography to Fellowship: My Continuing Journey’. In this talk she will discuss the various photographic techniques that she has been experimenting with, continuing to develop her work and the way that she sees things.
She will be showing monochrome photographs shot in locations in Venice and the UK, a portrait commission from Tim Andrews (involving a man with Parkinson’s Disease who has been photographed during the last eight years by 370 different photographers), and experimentations with a Holga 120 film camera. Viveca will be sharing some new iPhone images, a method of photographic capture that she still greatly enjoys and uses regularly, and of course there will be images featuring the texture overlays that she loves to work with, including a series of vintage postcards.
There will also be a series of colour photos processed in an ‘analogue’ style to replicate shots taken with an old camera, composites capturing the essence of a rainy day in London, and a set of pictures entitled ‘Treasures of the Chateau’, based on beautiful objects discovered in France.
With this talk Viveca is aiming to demonstrate the new directions in which she is heading, as well as showing more of the style of work that is familiar to viewers of her previous presentations.
About Viveca Koh FRPS
Viveca is a self-taught Fine Art photographer who sees potential images everywhere around her, often things that many seem to miss or simply pass by. Abandoned buildings are a passion of hers, as are the details of places that attract her eye, the minutiae that collects in hidden corners, the small parts of bigger things that are fascinating in their own right. She enhances many of her photographs with texture layers and overlays, experimenting with digital double exposure, using old documents that she has collected to add a different dimension to the work in question.
Following on from her previous distinctions LRPS and ARPS she attained Fellowship of The Royal Photographic Society in 2014. She is a member of the RPS Visual Art Group and Digital Imaging Group, and Honorary Secretary of the former.
She has exhibited in a number of venues, and all her photographs are sold via her website as signed numbered Limited Edition Giclée Fine Art prints.
