About PurpleT

Much of my photography is art and documentary. I try to capture a scene as i see it in my mind, whether that be black and white, colour, or somewhere in between. I try to make an interesting, and/or attractive image from what i see around me, not just what would be expected, but also subjects that would be seen boring, mundane, or ugly by many. But they all have an interest as art photography. I have also spent nearly twenty years working as a life model, then the human figure in art is very important to me, and is something i try to bring into my work at times.

Phallus Impudicus

Woodland Penis…… Cock Of The Woods….. Or better known as a Stink Horn. Whilst walking in the woods today we found some of these little beauties. P.T.

Earth Wizard……On Laundry Day

The title is a description given by a viewer on Flickr. He also said on one of them that it was “like viewing the world through an enchanted snow globe….without the snow” I really liked what he said. He’s studying … Continue reading

Sinister!

I’ve been exploring something of the darker side recently, a sinister side, that film character that never dies and just keeps on killing.       P.T.

Spooky Window!

I became quite captivated by this window. I fully expected to see the curtain pull back and a ghostly face appear. I’m actually a little upset that it didn’t, though i’m sure the family living there are quite pleased..   … Continue reading

Naked Shame!

I took these photos to represent how we are forced by society to hide away the human body. For those who are comfortable with the naked human body, we’re often treated as if it’s something shameful, or even worse, something … Continue reading

This is just as much your home as is ours…

An example of urban and social decay. In this and the last two blogs i’m not trying to focus on the people, but the places they inhabit.     P.T.
