MARK LOWRIE  PHOTOGRAPHY

​​​​​​​​
In an age of relentlessly endlessly repeated duplicatable imagery,
it’s nice to look at something handcrafted;
the production of a unique, one of a kind object;  
limited in production and digitally unreproducible;
something crafted in the physical as well as the digital.

Of course, ​​​​​​​​​​you are here, observing the work on a 2-D screen,
which makes it tough to portray a 3-D photosculpture.

​So what you see here, for the most part, are my rough drafts, my digital photoshopped blueprints for the actual mounted prints; or else photos of my completed photos.

Mark Lowrie Photosculpture
     ​​​I have been a photographer and award-winning editor for over thirty years, experimenting with montage techniques and exploring the lands I love, notably the American Southwest. My photomontage work consists of single images stacked together to create a larger whole. By building up the individual photos on layers of foam core, I create a composite image that has as much to do with sculpture as with photography. They are snapshots with aspects of time, motion and depth to them.
   
      ​​
These techniques of shooting, cutting and mounting are used to achieve the following: To vary depth of focus and exposure within the scene; to force elements to the foreground that would otherwise remain background incidentals; to juxtapose different moments of time in the same space; to manipulate spatial and temporal perspectives; and to create a fractal image area that can contain more than 100% of the original image in space and time.
   
      
I think these techniques create a decidedly more interesting object than a flat rectangle in a frame. The hand-crafted three dimensional aspect allows each photosculpture to be unique; not easily subject to endless reproduction. Composition becomes as much a function of postproduction as the original shoot. Mainly, though, it’s just more fun to hang one of these on a wall than another flat 8x10 colored glossy print.
