The pictures are an expression of the vision and emotion that Anthony Fildes experiences when he looks through the camera lens and composes the picture. They are influenced by a lifetime in commercial photography and often contain clues to this background.
The ‘China in the Abstract’ series strives to be a unique and individual expression of a China beyond the mortal in a fusion of culture, architecture and ancient history. It is impossible to be anything other than an outsider’s interpretation of a China that is so rich and diverse and a country embracing such radical change.
The pictures represent a journey that is both real and imagined, that is anchored in reality by its very presence in ink and paper but offers a vision of a world beyond.
