Tricia Meynell

Tricia Meynell is a fine art photographer specialising in abstract images which very often blur the distinction between photography and printing - almost (but not quite) painting. She does not use Photoshop to create her work, preferring to 'manipulate' images manually by processes such as printing onto acetate and spraying with water to create a painterly effect, or by simply printing two different images onto the same piece of paper to create an abstract image. Her camera is often used to 'paint' the subject by selecting colour and form and shooting in such a way that these two elements are rendered as a confusion of colours with just the merest hint of the reality behind them. She also likes to experiment with ‘Intentional Camera Movement’ - long exposures, small apertures and a good deal of swinging the camera around. The results are sometimes surprising.
