About the author:
The world presents itself and occasionally, I take the time to observe. There are times when the observation takes on the form of obsession, at other times it is the casual encounter. These moments become photographs. Believing that the normal needs to be elevated by exaggeration or simplification, I apply my skills to interpret these instances.
My work, since 1998, has focused on computer manipulated photographs.
I've exhibited in group and one person shows since 1969; exhibiting photographs, painting and prints. The prints have been exhibited extensively through 147 exhibitions, primarily in US University, College, and Community galleries. The exhibitions have been in; BC, Alberta, Ontario and in 31 American States.
Also an exhibitor in 12 virtual web galleries, associated with academic conferences focused on digital imaging in Australia, China, Thailand, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.
In 2006, I began publishing my completed projects as books, and have completed thirteen books to date, with three others in development to be published in 2010.
Born and educated in Alberta, I have been living in Victoria, on Canada's West Coast, since 1984.
Random Walks . . . Paris
Raymond St. Arnaud
Random Walks . . . Paris comes from the kind of travel undertaken by my wife and I. We have no set itinerary, no guides, no arranged tours and minimal hotel reservations.
The "random walk" concept came to mind a number of years ago as a possible title for an exhibition of photographs of a different travel experience. The title has been resurrected to present the explorations during our trip to Paris. It encompasses day-to-day events and is organized around some recurring themes that evolved during the 10 day experience.
One of three books of photographs from the 'French collection'. This book encompasses photographs of day-to-day experiences while wandering around Paris and features common themes that evolved during the experience. The photographs have altered or manipulated color, contrast and detail, which is a continuing feature in my photographs.
144 pages, 123 photographs
The two other themes of photographs from Paris have been published separately as, Secrets . . . from the museums of Paris and Sortie . . . The Running Man.
