  • Overlapping sheets of plastic sheets were sprinkled with dots cut from the plastic. Then the composition was photographed through an upper and lower polarizing filter. This is part of my Garbography Series. Garbography: Valuing the Discarded - The series Garbography: Valuing the Discarded reverses the value of objects. By using discarded materials to refract and modify light, I find surprising shapes, tones, and colors.

London Looking Up: Architectural Photos - London Looking Up is a photographic record of my journey around central London. Why the title Looking Up, you ask? Because, all I could see looking ahead and side to side was a mass of people: individual tourists, tour groups, workers, and shoppers.

  • This is a close-up of the More London Building on More London Riverside between London and Tower Bridges. This image is part of our London architectural abstracts portfolio.

Botanical Portraits of Flowers & Dried Plants - This new collection of botanical portraits by William Horton is reminiscent of very old illustrations of plants found in textbooks and scientific journals.
  • Swirling Paint Abstracts - Abstract patterns made by mixing acrylic paints and fluorescent paint with oil and silicone, then photographing the results. In the collection Colorful Abstract Close-ups. Swirling Paint Abstracts - I have been having some fun in my studio creating swirling paint abstracts. What exactly are they, you might ask? Well, I’ve been mixing acrylic paints, water-based inks, various flow mediums, silicone, and oil in large enameled trays. Once I have a pleasing pattern, I photograph it. The resulting images look like jasper, primordial ooze, … Continue reading Swirling Paint Abstracts
