‘Without Water’ by Isamu Sawa ~ This Thursday @ Black Eye Gallery :
When a close-focus view of a rock or mineral particle is not possible over the entire image, MAHLI photographs a series of images in up to eight focus positions. On board software then merges them to create a single ‘best-focus’ image.
Similarly, Sawa has taken up to 25 images of his plants before combining them using computer software to produce single, crisp and extremely detailed images in uniform focus, achieving remarkable results previously unattainable by traditional methods.
His first solo show in Melbourne in 2015 caught the eye of Australian and overseas media including The Age, Broadsheet and influential UK trade journal Creative Review. The show was a commercial success with over thirty large format works acquired by collectors, creatives and institutions.
“I’m delighted to be bringing my flowers to Sydney,” says Sawa. “I’ve used my background as a commercial photographer to create artwork that I think is both beautiful and arresting.”
