SCARLET JAMES A.R.P.S. IS AN ENGLISH PHOTOGRAPHER WHOSE WORK IS EXHIBITED EXTENSIVELY IN ENGLAND AND ABROAD IN GALLERIES
AND MUSEUMS PLUS VARIOUS PIECES ARE HELD BY PRIVATE COLLECTORS IN THE U.K. AND AMERICA. SOME OF HER IMAGES HAVE BEEN USED FOR PUBLICATION IN MAGAZINES AND REPRODUCED BY GREETING CARD COMPANIES. SHE HAS ALSO WON AWARDS AND MONIES IN TERNATIONAL COMPETITIONS. SHE WORKS IN BLACK AND WHITE , COLOUR AND DIGITAL IMAGERY. IN 1998 SCARLET BECAME AN ASSOCIATE OF THE ROYAL PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY IN BATH ENGLAND. AT THE START OF THE MILLENNIUM HER `MANIPULATED MANIPULATIONS` SHOW WAS
EXHIBITED AT THE LONDON BARBICAN CENTRE AND AROUND ENGLAND .
EVERY PHOTOGRAPH HAS IN SOME WAY BEEN `SET UP` AND `MANIPULATED` EVEN BEFORE THE IMAGE IS CAPTURED BY THE CAMERA LATER
THEY CAN BE ALTERED, FALSIFY AND CREATE....A FEW YEARS AGO I FELL IN LOVE - WITH POLAROID FILM. THE APPEAL OF TAKING STRAIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY INTO THE REALMS OF FANTASY BECAME AN OBSESSION. I USE POLAROID`S SX-70 AND THEN `MANIPULATE` THE EMULSION WHICH GIVES A `PAINTERLY` EFFECT AND AS THIS PROCESS CANNOT BE REPEATED ABSOLUTELY, EVERY PICTURE IS AN ORIGINAL PIECE OF
WORK. THE DIGITAL WORK IS EITHER FROM A DIGITAL CAMERA OR A SCANNED PHOTOGRAPH THEN `ALTERED` AND PRINTED ONTO TREATED,
TEXTURED AND WATER COLOUR PAPERS. ALTHOUGH THE INKJETS HAVE BEEN VARNISHED WITH A U.V. PROTECTIVE COATING THEY SHOULD BE TREATED AS A WATER COLOUR PAINTING. images ©copyright Scarlet James 913
