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.
Solo...artist's first flight
Raymond H St Arnaud
This book features photographs from my first solo and travelling exhibition in 1970. The imagery comes from the abstraction resulting from the use of extreme close-ups of texture and pattern.
Originally printed from large format negatives, they have been digitally captured and processed with new insights, and new information that was in the original negatives but did not reveal itself in prints from the 1970s.
Additional images from the same series that were never exhibited are included. These negatives were too badly damaged to be used at that time. They are now presented with digital restoration. 30 photographs, 48 pages.
