Exploration into Photo Scanography by Janet Dwyer

Janet Dwyer, Photography

 

My exploration into photo scanography began in 2001, initially because of the unparalleled resolution.  Inspired by the infinite variety and exact structures found in nature: plants, feathers, bones and ice, even live insects found their way into my compositions, becoming part of a story or metaphor.

While nature unfolds, wilts, interacts and melts, a myopic lens and light source pass by, converting what it sees to digital information. Sometimes living insects move causing a colorful digital track to be imaged, an artifact of their trail and structure. That is the gift, the unpredictable part left to chance and timing; an effect unique to scanner imaging, perhaps most visible in the detail of “Orbweavers”.

Creativity – “using Difference as a tool to bring interest”

“I am convinced that a great deal of what “Art” is lies in doing things differently. In visual arts, looking at things from another angle, modifying the lighting, adjusting an expression, or modifying an attitude can bring life to an otherwise dull work. However, seeking difference simply for the sake of it is probably not a good way to obtain the best results. This is where “Creativity” steps in. I would personally define it as the ability to use difference as a tool to bring interest. Therefore, being creative is very important to me. Of course, I often fail at it, but I believe that pursuing that goal is the path I should follow.”

“I use both film and digital but my love is film. I like the process of working with it. Shooting the old fashion way, calculating exposure using a meter, and focusing on a ground glass back with a dark cape shading you slows you down and takes time. I get my best images when I slow down and really concentrate on what I am trying to capture.”
