Like all impressionistic art, soft-focus photography takes the obvious out of commonplace objects and draws attention to more fundamental elements.

Caledon photographer Pam Purves prefers a non-representational approach to photography to emphasize the essentials of colour and form. Like all impressionistic art, soft-focus photography takes the obvious out of commonplace objects and draws attention to more fundamental elements. The method requires concentration on framing, colour and graphic structure in order to achieve a sense of coherence and quiet beauty in the overall movement of shape and colour. Pam says it is her way of slowing down, simplifying life and creating a small record of the things she has noticed and appreciated. pampurvesphotography.com
