SÁNDOR BENKÖ - Hungary

"What interests me most in photography are humans as personalities and social beings. I see the camera as a replacement for brush or pencil. Looking for new techniques and the related new ways of seeing also interest me, as much as the involvement of creativity and aesthetics. Just to make nice pictures, the creative demands suffice."

PAUL BIDDLE - UK

On the threshold of reality

Some pictures are simple and complete inside my head from the beginning, but most of my images start with the inspiration of the objects. It may be something found in a junk shop, washed up on the beach near where I live or something from my past -wooden letters from a childhood game, my palette from my art school days. I often assemble a collection of things and then have "play-time" to find the right composition, juxtaposition and colours. Colour, of course, is very important. I love saturated colour and often use pure pigment on objects and backgrounds. Sometimes a meaning will evolve that was not originally intended, but mostly I prefer people to read what they like into the pictures or hopefully just enjoy them for their visual stimulation. Almost all these images were shot completely in camera, although I am using the computer more and more and am very excited by its limitless possibilities. I am keen to have the same technical excellence in anything computer generated as I hopefully attain with conventional photography.
