Maddi Ring - Fine Art Photographs

Artists Statement

As a self-taught photographer, I have traveled to remote parts of the world seeking out unusual images of people, still life, landscape and architecture. I use both color and monochromatic tonal range to reproduce the scene and set the mood. In addition I have worked in image transfer to create a completely different, watercolor effect and use digital manipulation on select images to produce tinted black and white images as well as fanciful color abstracts.
