Fathom And Fray
The photographs have not been digitally manipulated in any way. They are 100% genuine. They simply show a real, live world in a way we are unable to see.
The photographs offer a great deal of variety; some are colourful while others monochromatic. All are original and filled with unexpected beauty.
On his artist statement Caleb opens up with an Albert Einstein quote; “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”
