Extraordinary and intriguing award-winning images.

Stuart Hill:
"I intentionally try to blur the lines between photography and painting. The work presented here includes:

  • straight photographs, some of which are like abstract paintings
  • photographs cut and re-assembled to make new images
  • photographs used as the starting point for a digital painting
  • miniature paintings photographically enlarged to show microscopic detail.

Although all the manipulation of images is done digitally, I restrict myself to techniques replicable in a normal darkroom. I'm not afraid to defy convention and believe my work is at the cutting edge.
I hope you enjoy it"

Stuart lives in Shetland, the most northerly isles of the UK and finds constant inspiration in this wonderful part of the world.
