Viveca Koh FRPS
I am a self-taught Fine Art photographer, who has always loved taking photographs from a very young age, and I see potential images everywhere around me, often things that many seem to miss or simply pass by. Abandoned buildings are a passion of mine, since I discovered the Urban Exploration in 2009, and I seek to capture these derelict and unloved places in a way that honours the memory of all the lives that were once contained within them. In contrast to this, I enjoy being in wide open spaces where the sky is above me, and whilst I do not consider myself to be a landscape photographer I do like to shoot seascapes, woodland and rolling hills. Finally it is the details of places that attract my eye, the minutiae that collects in hidden corners, the small parts of bigger things that are fascinating in their own right, be they natural or man-made which I often feel deserve some attention.
I enhance many of my photographs with texture layers and overlays, experimenting with digital double exposure, using old documents that I have collected to add a different dimension to the work in question.
In 2010 I was awarded a Licentiateship Distinction by the Royal Photographic Society for ten photographs based on birth to death in a mental asylum, and in June 2011 I submitted a panel of fifteen photographs for an Associateship Distinction the Society, and was successful in attaining this distinction following a unanimous vote from the judges. I went on to achieve Fellowship in June 2014.
I'm on 500px to look at photographs, but I tend to upload to either Flickr, Instagram and my own website: www.vivecakohphotography.com
