The Myopic series represents the continuation of John’s curiosity with focus and unfocus. Through his experimentation with soft-focus photogenic manipulation, the elements of color, tone, and shape shift towards abstraction. The result is an image where all reference to place is removed, leaving iridescent circles dancing in its place.
The photographs are shown in their original state as taken and are not digitally manipulated in post. Using a proprietary proofing process to achieve the most accurate colors possible, John prints straight to canvas utilizing a state-of-the-art digital darkroom with a wide-format printer and archival inks. Once printed, canvases are given a protective UV coating, stretched over custom-designed stretcher bars, and framed with handmade, locally built wood floater frames, made to order in dark walnut or painted black.
