Welcome to personal web site of John Dowding!
There’s a certain magic in the photographic process that has compelled me, from the moment I bought my first camera, to find new and expressive ways “to see like a camera” and to create Surreal images of the world I see. Infrared film and the broad spectrum of ‘Photo Impressionism’ are the building blocks of this work. The key is the ‘magic’ I feel when I work with camera and film.( and lately, Digital).
Photography is always more than the sum of its parts. It is a world where dreams become visible and a little child morphs to a ‘faerie princess’ . I also find it satisfying to teach workshops in these processes. Maybe that’s because ,as the old adage goes, when you teach, you learn.
