This piece of work is a part of work which was undertaken whilst completing a module for my MA. It looks how Contemporary Art has become an in-stringent part of Photography as a whole, and the way that the Artist/Designer has over the centuries used Photography as a way to aid the production of otherwise all most impossible pieces. One such person is 'Johannes Vermeer' who painted the beautiful 'Girl with the Pear Earring', and is noted to have said on the use of the Camera Obscura, which at the time was widely used by Landscape and Portrait Artists, "from today painting is dead".
This piece entitled A Craftsman's Lot is constructed from almost fifty different layers and masks.
I appreciate that this type of work will not appeal to the hard line traditional style photographers, however one must look deeper in order to fully appreciate and understand the concept behind such pieces. I have also included the original image, which was captured at Chatham's Historical Dockyard.
