Vicky’s Thoughts On The Art1095 Project
It was a privileged encounter to meet David Edmonson in cyberspace last year. As a huge admirer of his exquisite, interpretation of classic art history I was instantly drawn to his photography. In the true sense of the word David is a contemporary, Renaissance Master, Painter, Photographer.
Vicky’s Thoughts On The David
I was so flattered when he replied to my fan mail message and new we had an instant creative connection. I was in disbelief at the time that he would take a genuine interest in my photographic journey and write back to me with such sincere encouragement and guidance. I am so grateful that we have connected, he truly has a heart of gold (leaf). David continues to inspire me!
David’s thoughts on Vicky
Vicky’s photography exhibits simple lighting combined with refined posing to create remarkable drama. Her creation of costumes, art pieces, and head pieces is both transformative and trendsetting. What she is doing and will be doing is noteworthy now and in the future. I’d suggest every professional and aspiring photographer keep her in your sights.
Seeing her her extraordinary success in print competition is very exciting for me. In particular, because I did not know that some of the work I was judging was hers. Her fashion photography is so fresh and stimulating that it made it doubly interesting to find out who won. She’s just one more reason why it’s so easy to love the Australian photography community.
