Starbursts off the shoulder of orion
printed on Giclée Epson Semi-Gloss
Mixed media collage developed in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. All the images in this collection have resulted from long hours of combining extreme close-up photography with collage constructions, the end results being rephotographed and sent to Photoshop for further extensive manipulation. The inspiration for this image came from a line spoken by a dying replicant in the ground breaking science-fiction film, "Bladerunner". "We fought ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion", It is a hauntingly sad moment as the replicant realises that all his memories will be, in his own words, "lost like tears in rain". Perhaps this abstract image helps retain at least a tiny part of that fading memory.
