Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at

    Freud must have had a special place in his imagination for Japanese architects Chris:-). Wonderfully presented feeling.

  • I don’t think you could ever tell by this image but I do have a great deal of admiration for much of the Japanese esthetic. (Except for the kami kazi/hari kari bit) but as for Freud, I can hardly say, thought he was more focused on bigger things. I’m honored though that you liked this picture Ted, thanks very much indeed. Cheers.
