Nathan Collie

Photography

 

Nathan Collie’s photography is an unusual blend of print, texture, color, and dimension. His innovative use of gampi paper literally pushes the edges of typical photographic technique. This Japanese paper, which consists of kozo, gampi, and Mitsumata fibers gathered from native bushes, is traditionally used for pastel, watercolor, and liquid acrylic artwork—not as photographic paper. The effect, however, transforms simple photos into paper sculpture.
