Genesis by Marguerite Foxon

Photographic Prints

Small (8.0" x 12.0")


Macro shot of fibreglass repair work to the underside of the hull of a trawler in drydock. The second shot was taken on almost the same day, same time of the day, two years later. Interesting to see how much degradation in color there is.

FEATURED in Abstract Macro Urban Art Group Nov/Dec 2008
SOLD 16×20 framed to a friend renovating her home



abstract, boat, macro, peeling paint

I love macro abstract work of rejected and neglected items in our society, especially rusty old dumpsters (skips) around the back of buildings, battered boats up on dry dock, rotting wood, bark of trees, and so on. Im fascinated by the color and texture that appears with a macro lens. I do almost no post-processing after taking the shot.

  • Thanks Antanas. I enjoyed looking through your work too – I was in the south of Latvia right near your border just a few months ago and loved the region.
