River 1 is the start of a creative editorial photography project using the natural light and movement of a body of water to create fine art photography.
Being able to observe the small in the grand, creating an image from nothing that si the job of the reportage artist. For River 1 part of the River series I anted to see a texture in the space. The folding of the river water over itself in small waves inspired the idea of an almost material like texture. Barely perceptible in the dark underlying colours is the space, the break between the smooth surface. The image is about form, movement and colour rather than the river itself. Rothko like in its presentation River 1 asks the viewer to immerse themselves within it.
