TED SCOTT: Photographer, Architect, Graphic Designer Artist’s statement from the Florianopolis, Brazil, exhibition (May, 2014): “Most of these images were isolated then extracted from ordinary scenes. The identity of the original subject is sometimes lost in that translation from scene to print, from three dimensions to two dimensions; the scale of it often becomes ambiguous. Sometimes, in making an image, the highest levels of technique are invaluable; at other times they are irrelevant. In a few cases, the printed image never existed; it was created layer by layer on film or digitally, one exposure after another, one fragment after another, so that the final image is a blended accumulation of selected pieces, a re-assembly, giving birth to an entirely new image.” T.S.
