Out of all the photographic books I've written, I enjoyed working on Digital Photo Art the most. It was exciting and stimulating to blend the traditional with the cutting edge and come up with unique artistic processes. Crafting this book has given me the freedom to create an image without having to categorize it.
In the past, an image was a photograph, a painting, an inkjet digital print, or an Iris print etc. Everything had to be named. Now that we are in the digital arena, we are also entering an era of “mixed media”. Because the digital print can be printed on just about any substrate it gives the artist the freedom to go beyond the print…to collage, to paint, to transfer, to express what she/he feels rather than just what she/he sees.
This is another whole new generation of art.
