The Father of Photography according to John Werge (1890).

“Charles William Scheele was born at Stralsund, Sweden, December 19th, 1742, and died at Koeping, on lake Moeler, May 21st, 1786. He was the real father of photography, for he produced the first photographic picture on record without camera and without lens, with the same chemical compound and the same beautiful and wonderful combination of natural colours which we now employ. Little did he dream what was to follow.”

Wild Blue-Eyed Anubis SMOKE PORTRAITS Series

Title: “Wild Blue-Eyed Anubis”.

Creation Date: 4 July 2018


Series Year : 2018.

SMOKE PORTRAITS are ethereal smoke images, in which, I see eerie and mystical faces—not everyone has this ability, but I guess I am very aware of such “spirits” living inside my smoke portraits.

“Anubis (/əˈnjuːbɪs/;[1] Ancient Greek: Ἄνουβις, Egyptian, Coptic: Anoup) is the Greek name of a god associated with mummification and the afterlife in ancient Egyptian religion, usually depicted as a canine or a man with a canine head. Archeologists have identified Anubis’ sacred animal as an Egyptian canid, the African golden wolf.” (Wikipedia).

I have a feeling that like my Fire Portraits Series, most all of the portraits of this series will be evil, or mystical appearing.

About Clotho:

Clotho (/ˈkloʊθoʊ/; Greek: Κλωθώ) is one of the Three Fates or Moirai who spin (Clotho), draw out (Lachesis) and cut (Atropos) the thread of Life in ancient Greek mythology. Her Roman equivalent is Nona. Clotho was responsible for spinning the thread of human life. She also made major decisions, such as when a person was born, thus in effect controlling people’s lives. This power enabled her not only to choose who was born, but also to decide when gods or mortals were to be saved or put to death. For example, Clotho brought Pelops back to life when his father boiled and killed him.” (Source: Wikipedia.org/wiki/clotho)

The Series Style: Non-Geometric, Delineated, Abstract, Figurative.

This is a three piece series. It is of a “Non-Geometric, Delineated, Abstract, Figurative, style. The three art photographs of this series are my representation of the Greek mythological Fates: Lachesis, Clotho, and Atropos. There was no particular spark of influence to do this series. I am a student of Ancient Greek History, and Mythology, and I wanted to do a series of the Fates in my personal style: Non-geometric, Delineated Abstract.
