|Contemporary Fine Art
illustrates the imaginative and creative colour photography of John Brooks.
This high quality Fine Art Photographic work specialises in both abstract and
semi-abstract landscape and urban images. The colour images are not just about
capturing the dramatic but are also about the common place, the familiar and
easily overlooked. These may take on an unexpected beuaty when isolated and
abstracted from their usual context.
His preferred camera and film format is 6cm x 6cm square using a Rollieflex
camera or 6cm x 4.5cm with his Bronica, together with two 5" x 4"
plate cameras. Since the advent of digital photography he also uses a digital
camera using the superb quality and definition afforded by the Leica lens.
The subject matter is extracted from East and West Coast Canada, United States
of America, United Kingdom, North Africa, India, Cuba, Poland, Belarus, Russia,
Mongolia and China.
