Ambit With Lines And Squares

  • Photographer
    Denis Hagen

From the Ambit series: an abstract figure in an abstract space, seen through various geometric-related inverted shapes. In the final frame, the figure seems to vaporize and drift apart. These are digital photo composites. They were not planned or staged. Subject matter is found at various times and locations and whole photos are combined. My focus is exploration and my goal is to created images I have not seen before. There is always the surprise of discovery, the search for something unique and the irony of making photos that may not eventually resemble photographs.

Edges Of Time: Some things change and some things stay the same. In an Abstract World, the figures at left and right edges of these images stay the same, as all else changes. These digital photo composites are not planned or staged, but subject matter is found at various times and locations, captured and multiple whole photos are combined in Photoshop. My focus is visual exploration, and my goal is to create images that I have not seen before. There is always the surprise of discovery, the search for something unique, and the irony of making photos that may not eventually resemble photographs.
