Clive Dunn is an award-winning photographer based in Norwich, specialising in creatively processed digital imagery for publishing, multi-media applications or as stand-alone fine art.
Clive began his working life as a Cartographic Draughtsman for the Ordnance Survey, which gave him the foundation for an enduring passion for topography and landscape. He then trained as a photographer before moving into television production, spending many years as a documentary film-maker. (see Films gallery)
Clive's photography explores remote and under-visited areas of our countryside; forgotten, rarely trodden landscapes off-the-beaten track and beyond the obvious. He seeks out ruined dwellings and half-buried remains decayed with the passage of history while still retaining a magical atmosphere and an air of secrecy or mystery. His work also encompasses many techniques and abstract textures, shapes and light dances. By adding distressed overlays and scratches, Clive attempts to achieve painterly digital impressions that awaken remnants of memory such as old photo albums or other fleeting glimpses of past experiences.
