Polyformative photography and imagery is Peter Stilton’s process of setting up slightly surreal/literary arrangements of nostalgic and arresting objects with statues in the garden, the shore, or interior spaces, and then altering the photographs of the set ups with various media and computer software to achieve a new world where fine art media and techniques coalesce indistinguishably with photography.
Part one explains Peter’s polymedia/polyformative photography. It documents how the artist uses his “environment” for the photography, which includes hundreds of “props” or interesting objects for set ups that are often lightly surreal and sometimes quite humorous–as well as the garden down south as a “location.” Watch Video Part 1
In Part two, walk through the studio to view a sampling of Peter’s recent polyformative images and watch his process for bringing them to life. Watch Video Part 2
