Camera-crafted impressionism satisfies self-expression of Australia timeless beauty

Camera-crafted impressionism  satisfies self-expression of Australia timeless beauty

Got a note from Phil. It is from a park bench in Tuncurry, New South Wales about 300km nne of Sydney.

Like Clancy's mate of Overflow fame, while it has not been written with a thumbnail dipped in tar there is an apology that a Tuncurry park perch does not support fine penmanship.

Phil Jones and his partner Alayne Russell are often on the road.

Phil is one of GoSeeAustralia's helpful 'Old Heads'. In the last nine years many a GoSee Newbie is better for his generous assistance.

Phil captures his impressions of Australia with a camera. To use a camera well is an art. Cameras see more and less than a flesh and blood artist, but need an artist's appreciation of what its mechanics see to capture and shape the instant.

Albert Tucker demonstrated the point with his camera-captured Heide Retrospective.

Editor note: "The thing I realised quickly with a camera, it would see things I couldnt.
You have to allow the camera to tell you how to function in order to supplement and get the virtues out of a camera, Albert Tucker. From an interview with Stephen Feneley. http://www.abc.net.au/arts/express/stories/tucker.htm;

and Andy Warhol changed the direction of visual art when he projected images and then painted them.

Paint with a camera and self-expression is stunningly satisfying. http://www.philjones.com.au/

Here is some of Phil's impressionism via his camera:
