About Melanie Foster

From the initial and inevitable documentation of people and places that have interested me over the years, photography has slowly grown to say more about my feelings for the subject than before. The nature of making a selection or abstraction of what I have seen (unconsciously at first) has lead to a more creative approach, and the enjoyment of making an image in its own right. It has brought me to realise both the potential and the necessity of a photograph to become more than a two dimensional document.
