Online art magazine iGNANT got in touch early 2016 to talk about Lost Collective. Another amazing publication who helped share the story from the very beginning.
It was pretty exciting stuff to be featured alongside some of the world's most talented upcoming artists.
I had to have a laugh at some of the feedback from the Facebook post. I guess it is no surprise that not everyone loves HDR.
Here's some of my personal favourites -
Please iGNANT shows us no such HDR photos.
2006 called, it wants its Flickr photos back.
HDR post process should be illegal.
Everyone's a critic huh?
I think HDR is one of those things that has been through a period of being so overdone by everyone (including myself), that it became a dirty word by default.
While I certainly believe people's criticisms of HDR can be valid, it's like anything other creative outlets, there can still be good when there is bad.
There is no shortage of terrible music out there but you wouldn't stop listening altogether because someone made a trap remix of Gangnam Style right?
I guess for my comparison to make sense the internet would need to be flooded with terrible remixes of Gangnam Style. For all I know, it probably is!
Anyway, check out some excerpts from the article below.
From an old power station to a forgotten hospital, the images depict decaying places in dark tones with an eerie atmosphere.
In an exclusive statement about the project, Patman says: “I’ve been shooting abandoned buildings for five years. I think they provide really interesting subject matter that often has rich history attached.
The images are quite powerful and have the ability to engage entire communities in a discussion about the past, present and future of the buildings.”
