This a slide show of photographs taken by Richard Gins. These are pure high resolution shots and no special effects have been added. As with my works in other media, the themes of inner/outer relationships, and "process" are evident in these works. I wanted to create very "painterly photographs. In this series called "Water Nymph", high resolution digital photographs were taken, emphasizing: light, shadow, foreground and back ground. The use of the nude creates mystery within the effects of the water. Escher did a beautiful lithograph of puddles in a road, reflecting the trees all around while also seeing a goldfish under the water's surface. Many of these photographs look like loose gestural paintings. In most, some part of the body is clear and visible creating a reference for the painterly parts to be real too. There is also a group of photographs where I use the light in water to both soften and harden the nude image.

Aloha From Hawaii,
I had a series of similiar photo's, but I had my girlfriend wear an old lace wedding dress that left an impression of the nymph in a waterworld fantasy that I also saw in another Artist/Photographer's work. We sometimes are on the same frequentcy and recieve the same information from The Acachic Record. I Love Your Work.
