HUGH BURDEN photographer - about the LAKE photographs

'... walls contoured with mould and populated with lichen caught my eye. The effect was curious, like an underwater scene. Instinctively I photographed some of them and after post production the walls really did look aqueous; but I was disappointed. The visceral feeling I got from the walls had not fully translated.

Intervention was required. I purposefully photographed lake scenes and when these and the original images were combined with Photoshop magic the walls finally articulated their watery story.'

HOW THE LAKE IMAGES CAME TO LIFE
