Transformations is a departure from the traditions of photography where the faithful recording of reality by the lens is replaced by a different view. Sometimes my photographs surprise me - which is probably why I keep making them. A famous photographer, when asked why he made photographs, said "I just want to see what it would look like as a photograph".
Here are some examples of cameras that were specifically designed to create distortions. For more exploration on this subject, please see the cdRom titled Pinhole to Pixel which can be found on the cdRom page of this website.
Sometimes accidents happen as in the case of the MonoLake series.
