Photography: Elspeth and Evan


Amy by Elspeth and EvanElspeth and Evan don’t post any personal information to their Flickr photostream, but from what I can deduce they are a couple of well-travelled Australians with a nice line in photography.

Take a look at their space on Flickr and you will find a portfolio spanning 2008-2010, which is a mixture of conventional photography and digital collage.

 

Untitled by Elspeth and EvanI was immediately drawn to the set Something More

Evan wrote:
“These are my latest photo-collage experiments.

In mid 2009 I rewrote my software for generating these images to facilitate more generic transform implementations. I also created a GUI to help organize my work.

Work on images and the code is ongoing.”

You will see the digital photo-collage technique pulls a huge number of Creative Commons licensed images to incorporate into the two E’s own master images. All the original artists works are credited, which is as it should be.

Millicent by Elspeth and Evan on FlickrYou can see some development of Evan’s technique, as in the set Synergy. The image Amy includes the caption:

“I have been experimenting with color transforms for the placed images. Here is the first effort with modified HSB parameters.”

You can also see some of the works as they progress – the set Synergy includes a couple of videos which are slideshows of versions and artefacts produced by the digital collage software. RC

  1. The stars of that pool are classified as the comments and the pictures really are secondary.

  2. Think it like a journal or perhaps a magazine involving general interest for anybody to understand. Funny, witty, controversial, entertaining, useful, acerbic, thoughtful, serious, curious, unexpected.
