This photograph is from John's latest portfolio of work and involved him experimenting with out or the ordinary print surfaces, he was stunned at how interesting his images looked when printed on aluminium.
They take on an added luminescence, darker colours appear richer and more vibrant, whilst lighter colours inherit the more subtle properties of the metal's surface. Overall this process creates a somewhat three-dimensional effect which is particularly effective when viewed in natural light.
As with so many great concepts and ideas, the Reflections series started off with a lucky accident in the photographic darkroom. Much like taking a flat piece of paper, then twisting and turning it into fascinatingly intricate and delicate origami shapes.
John took that concept and applied it to some of his photography, and as you can see there’s some truly unique and powerful artwork emerging. Even he wasn't prepared for some of the ‘images within an image’ that started appearing.
"What do you see, I wonder, when you start looking closely at them? Do you see the Sparrow King? I do. But never mind me, what do you see?" - John Drennan.
