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”.
