I have a keen interest in landscape photography and I am always looking into new ways of creating an image of a landscape, rather than simply taking a mundane image, of which there are plenty. This can often prove to be a challenge and it is therefore good practice to see what else has been achieved by other artists and photographers. This process helps me creatively and give me inspiration and ideas that I can apply to my own practice. Whilst undertaking some research, I came across a fine art photographer by the name of Frances Seward and found her work to be creative, fascinating and alluring.
Frances Seward is an award-winning Artist Photographer living in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her abstract landscape photography has appeared in numerous printed media including magazines, books & CD Covers. Frances has also exhibited and sold her work to art galleries, interior designers, art consultancy firms & various other corporations and her work has also been purchased by private collectors within the US, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Frances has won awards at the International Photography Awards (IPA) with her image Stormy Blue and runner up in the WPGA Awards with The Silence which was exhibited at the Borges Cultural Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2012.
Born in London, UK, Frances has spent time living in France, Spain, Australia, Hong Kong and Boston, USA before coming to live and create her abstract art photography in New Mexico.
Frances has travelled far and wide and her extensive travels have had a direct influence on her art.
Her work is definitely a source of inspiration. More of her work can be found on her website by clicking on the link below.
