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.

Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso (1881 – 1973)

The muses of Pablo Picasso play a central role in his art, entire periods can be identified with his respective muses. “Nude Seated in a Chair” (1963) shows Jacqueline Roque, whom he met in 1952 and married in 1961. 45 his junor, she became the artist most important muse during his last twenty years, a symbolic figure of feminity; beauty; and male desire. Picasso’s art work of Jacqueline Rogue exhibt everfresh inspiration which is noted in the boisterous brushwork.

Jacqueline Roque

After Picasso had moved to Mougins together with Jacqueline Roque in 1961, he increasingly withdrew into himself. His expressive late work is informed by his battle against old age, his fears and erotic fantasies. Painting against death became his obsession. Picasso’s eruptive pictures of his last years are precursors of a new figurative form of painting.

In these years, Picasso frequently painted Bucolic or Arcadian scenes. One often encounters a flutist courting a woman in them, a theme which was highly popular in Venetian Renaissance painting such as in the art of Giorgione and Titan.

“Nude Woman with Bird and Flute Player” 1967 can be associated with the mediterranean, the pastoral novel and Daphnis and Chloe, but also contains a distint erotic allusion, which is expressed by the motif of the dove as a symbol of sexual lust.
