These 12 wonderful images have just been featured in the RedBubble group Gateways by host yours truly.
They are a mixed group this time, not all photos but then the Gateways group is not specifically photography.
In choosing which works to feature, first and foremost I need to feel that they fit the theme of the group, which is shamanistic. So I need to feel that as I gaze upon them that they offer me a portal into the other worlds. It is much more a felt than an intellectual thing, since this is something for which the intellect alone is not capable of doing.
Secondly, as works of art, they must be of a quality that aids the first criterion. It is, of course, rather subjective, but I make no apologies because I have nothing else to go on – quality is not so quantifiable.
Not a few works submitted to the group do not fit the theme but I stopped moderating submissions owing to the time factor.
Take a look at the group page and see the individual works by clicking this bit here.
