Chris Melville’s recent work is the latest progression in his lifelong interest in photography. Chris has been exploring abstract minimalism through long exposure techniques and camera movement to access a deeper appreciation of beauty and subtle meaning, in reaction to his more formal commercial music photography work.
Chris explores each subject by making a series of exposures and then manipulating the light captured within the camera to optimise each image. Constant experimentation and adjustment produces a variety of results; no two images are ever the same.
In his images the (normally mundane) subject matter dissolves to reveal dynamic light and dark form, creating surprising and exciting abstract minimalist images from fleeting moments and tricks of the light.
