DIGITALLY TRANSFIGURED PHOTOGRAPHY

#DTP: DIGITALLY TRANSFIGURED PHOTOGRAPHY
#DTPHOTOGRAPHY

It can be said modification, alteration or simply, editing, but my concept behind it goes beyond all these connotations of digital treatment of a photograph.

Here, I am trying to create something new, totally unrelated, with an altogether different meaning from what the original had.

From a photograph on how it looked and what it conveyed when I clicked it initially – to a digitally treated photograph with a changed personality of its own – an effort to give it a run of metamorphosis to sport a new look, to convey a different meaning.

I call it Digitally Transfigured Photography (#DTP) aiming to achieve with it what ‘Transfigure’ literally means – to transform into something more beautiful or elevated – using some of my chosen but unused photographs.

And aesthetically, my efforts are to keep the changed personality of the photographs into the realm of the abstract.

I want these transfigured photographs to convey more than what I intended to. If the abstract in these photographs could make the others find their own interpretations, it would really be good. And I would love to have the blessing of looking at more meanings into it than what went into naming it.

I would employ the digital tools that suit the mood of the process – that cater to the fulfilment of my intent – and complement the abstract metamorphosis – giving it an exalted and spiritual appearance – the Transfiguration that speaks.

It is an experiment to explore the next extension of my creative urge – fiction, non-fiction, poetry and photography – aligning my thoughts with the possibilities the digital editing tools can reveal while working on a particular photograph – an experiment performed in thoughts and aided digitally – the Digitally Experimented Photography (DEP/#DEP).
