“Paris is always a good idea” Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina

Jadore, Art Nouveaux, Impressionism, elegance and pure style, Paris didn’t let me down it has everything. This city does everything stylishly and effortlessly from street graffiti and rubbish bins to adverts in the Metros displayed in Renaissance fashion frames.

The streets with their charming high buildings and Art Deco features were a pleasure to the eye, and the people were very polite and friendly despite my attempts at speaking French.

The most tourist thing I did was go to the Musee D’orsay on a late night opening. This was a fantastic experience especially standing in front of Van Gogh’s Starry night and really seeing the vibrant colours and brush strokes……..now inspired to try and convey this effect in future projects.

Anyway this is how I saw Paris

Au revoir

“I Like to Look Beyond or Sideways….”

I am delighted this month to present the stunning and imaginative photography of Wendy Dobing, who sees the abstract patterns and colours of our every day urban towns and cities. It is this kaleidoscopic vision which drew me to Wendy’s world.

We see the architecture as so much more than just glass and brick. Wendy focuses upon the geometric shapes and repetition of the patterns which they form. She also cleverly frames the subjects from unusual angles which forces us to take more notice of what we are actually seeing.

These patterns and shapes are also emphasised by the way Wendy skilfully uses light and focuses upon colour.

So let’s start our walk down the high street and enjoy…..

In the Artists own words

“I am  freelance graphic designer and amateur photographer. I am motivated by the colour and form of our world, showing this through some of my  abstract, architectural and macro detail photography. I like to look beyond or sideways at everything so that I look before I see. ”
