Martin Perring. "The Hex Series"


Through the advent of digital photography a photograph is no longer a material object created in the darkroom. It has now turned into a mere image to be replicated and destroyed at will. Rather then this making images more permanent it has made them weaker only taking a small amount of corruption to completely distort the image.

In this series of photographs I have been editing the digital photograph from it source code (Ascii + Hex) thus showing the fragility of digital technology as well as empathising the photographs quality’s as an abstraction of the natural world rather then its reflection.

This is a photography of destruction using the photographs coding to reveal its programmed layers therefore its digital nature.
