Duncan Wade

A photographer that has always longed to be a painter. A single-minded pursuit of detailed perfection ultimately led somewhere quite unexpected. In a world where clarity and detail are common place, my journey took me backward and off to somewhere different. Backwards, for classic lenses that have character and flaws in equal measure. Different, in the desire to create unique images in light that explore another world just beyond our sight.
Like a painting, it is built up over layers, the light is nurtured and tended, guided and directed, the result is the blending of many layers that release the light for our delight. Each of these are unique pieces… 1/1.
Each of the images of crystal city tell a fragment of a story… a story that takes us through a city that is both unsettling (that moment when a city can seem strange and threatening) and glorious (when the lights and people create a buzzing landscape of excitement).
Sometimes the crystals creep out of the city and that it is where we find crystal world.
First we need to see the world as it is, spotting the wonder and beauty that exists all around us. then we need to see beyond that into a crystal city. just in the corner of your eye… familiar, yet at the same time a flash of something new and unexpected.
