Photography has been one of the continuing interests in my life and early on I became very interested in the idea of a photo essay... one or more images that present a theme for further exploration. My involvement in rail heritage museum and other presentations over the last several decades also led to some of the photo essays being created as display posters.
Rail Heritage Posters/Presentations: Individual interpretive posters and related materials are listed (with miniature representations) by year of production in the
Archives section of this site.
Memories: Each individual Memory image (listed below right) can hopefully stand on its own, although several are related and expand an individual theme.
Most of the individual images in the Memories series were originally created and printed on 8" x 10" cards for framing or mounting. They were then scaled to 50% for use as note cards (the size most often presented here). Some of the images were created as A3 posters, others as posters sized for specific locations or topics.
In 2016 I joined a
local printmaking group and am now focussing more on digital art, rather than interpretive posters. As well, after a hiatus of almost 50 years, I've returned to hand cut lino printing.
Double Exposure II (2017): Double Exposure exhibitions partner a printmaker with a local photographer. My 2017 partner, Fran McFadzen, had recently been to Hanoi and was intrigued by its many interesting doors, grills, gates and building entries. We combined that interest with her photos of local doors and lanes to produce the Rockhampton and Hanoi posterised
triptych print. More:

Geologica 2017: This was the Capricornia Printmakers' themed exhibition for September 2017. My print,
Rainbow Falls, Blackdown Tablelands 1995, used roughly 8 of the 37 photos of the falls and environs taken on a 1995 trip were aligned, adjusted and blended to create this image. 1995 was an exceptional year as the Tablelands are arid enough that many visitors have never seen water over the falls. The sunbathers were discovered during the printmaking and preserved to provide a scale for the falls.
