Essex born, Manchester based, photographer-artist george kear
(she prefers her name NOT capitalised – lower case letters always!)
describes herself as an “impressionist photographer”.
Often reworking her images using ‘Photoshop’ software,
though her work can stand alone without retouching or computer-based
image manipulation and enhancement.
“Art materials are malleable
and impressionable. I can impose my view of the world there
and step back while an image creates a life of it’s own using
my ideas, preferences and philosophies.
I use photography because it is the quickest medium, and I
am very impatient to impart an idea once it has occurred to
me. Also, a camera is the best tool for me because I have
a very precise and exacting eye, I can frame things well and
see the importance in a detail.”
Her current themes include life and death
in the urban setting and a very personal interpretation and
expression of the everyday world she observes around her.
All of her work is for sale and items can
be purchased either printed on mounted canvas – ready to hang,
or photographic quality, glossy paper for you to frame yourself.
We have received many emails pointing out that george’s name
should be capitalised as proper nouns. However, as this is her
preferred way of representing herself, we have respected her
convention – this by choice and NOT a typographical or grammatical
error on our part.
