Redactive Photo Manipulation

I often use my photos along with fractals as collage elements as I create an image. The question I hear the most is “How did you do that?”

I haven’t found a definition of what I do so I’ve named and defined it myself. Just like in a government document where parts are redacted or censored out, I redact or cut out color groups. The first image I ever did, Forgotten Harvest, was done this way, and I find myself going back to it again and again. By taking out colors, I am left with the pieces of color that haven’t been deleted. You do need to know what you want left or things can get out of hand. What is left is like paint daubs that suggest rather than draw an image. Impressionism by deletion.
