About The Series

Edward M. Fielding talks about the Visual Poetry Series:

“This series represents a stream of consciousness.  A playful exploration of imaginary and a non-linear thought process.  A signal final image in the series can begin hours before with browsing through my collection of over 100,000 photographs as well as historical and archived images from the past.

An image can head off on many tangents before the final composite is achieved.  Each image is carefully blended and layered in Adobe Photoshop with textures applied as well as drop shadows giving many of the images in the series a 3D look or depth.

I usually don’t know where the image is headed when I begin and the results are as surprising to me as perhaps the viewer.  Almost like a walking dream, I allow the story to unfold without too many conscious “rules” being applied or too much over thinking that would get in the way of the image coming to life from seemingly random thought.  I often think that this might be the way dreams are constructed in our sleeping heads – random images from the days activities, organized into some sort of storyline.”  –  Edward M. Fielding – www.edwardfielding.com

This fine art photography series is pure “sandbox” playing except with the use of images rather than toy trucks, shovels and pails.  The images lead from one to another until the artist says “stop” – its done.
