Transfigure Photography ethos is to find the converging line between the world of film, fine art and commercial photography and bound all those agents together to cook up a dream and add it to a reality. I work with an idea, visualise it and create it. Transfigure Photography says as much about me than the name denotes. I have metamorphosed myself from a snapshot photographer to a professional photographer, photographing many different subjects, from seascapes, portraiture, to monster dump trucks.

Photography for me is walking hand in hand with film making, converging the demand for creative exploration and pushing the boundaries in liberating client’s realities to give their photo shoot a new perspective digitally.

I just don’t use my camera to take photographs I work, blend and arouse, still and moving images.

I'm available for commissioned work.

Bible stories in paintings

Bible stories have been depicted and interpreted by the great artists such as Michelangelo, Vecchio, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio, Gauguin and Rubens, among others.

From the creation of the world, to the ark of Noah, to the Apocalypse, the masterpieces of the painting reveal to us their secrets and symbols of the biblical tradition, so we can recognize Saint Paul by his sword or Delilah by the scissors, distinguish Pentecost of the Ascension, rereading many passages of the Old and New Testaments in the light of the artistic interpretation of so many masters from the twelfth to the twentieth century.

I’m not claiming to be an academic in the translation of paintings or sculptures, but I’ve read the bible and one of my interests is mythology. With this knowledge I’m able to give my own translation and interoperation to these bible stories in paintings.

Translation Studies has researched and explored the role of translation and interpretation in history and culture, documenting what is surely one of the richest and least valued universal stories of the bible. Translators and interpreters have invented alphabets, provoking the birth of national languages ​​and literatures, spreading scientific and humanistic knowledge, accepting the reins of political power, fostering religions, and helping to write history.

During at least two thousand years translating and interpreting the Bible has contributed to this long history of communication, interaction and human acculturation. Perhaps more than any other text the Bible has marked its character in people of Europe and America, not to mention those people within the colonial empires to which the missionaries carried their translations. The Bible itself transmits its own version of this story to which it refers.

The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah by John Martin

The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah by John Martin

The scene in Genesis is Abraham, father of the Jews and uncle of Lot in particular. The latter lived in Sodom, and two angels arrived at his house, whom he hosted and protected from those who intended to rape them, and Lot, as a good host, although a worse father, offered the rabble to his daughters to be raped in his place. After that incident the angels announced to him: “Everything when you have in this city, get him out of here, because we are going to destroy this place, because his clamor is great in the presence of Yahweh, and he has commanded us to destroy it” (Gen. 19). : 12-13). The moment of the flight was portrayed by one of the main exponents of romanticism, John Martin, with its characteristic grandiosity.

The Bible has had an influence on music:

There is a chapter in the book “The Word of the Lorthat” has the following title: “What would have happened if the Bible had never existed?” The author of this chapter. Dr. W. Graham Scroggie, refers to many of the truly great musical compositions that are “the heritage of peoples of Western Europe,” and reminds us that they owe their very excellence to the Bible. Something that is important to mention is that the great Hymns of the Christian faith, all owe their existence and inspiration to the words of the Bible.
