D Hand-in for Open/Alt. Reality Competition

Expect the Unexpected     Lynne Morris MPAGB, ABPE, AFIAP, AWPF

  Lynne Morris specialises in surreal and manipulated imagery.  Using her own portfolio, she crafts the imagery to produce altered reality based photography.  Her abstract work frequently begins life as ‘a fleeting thought in time’, often based on a ‘seed of humour’.  Lynne likes her work to ‘grow’ organically, gradually allowing it to shape and form, as she explores the humour and impact it evokes.
