Pym, Abi

Abi is a Macro Photographer based in Reading, Berkshire. After graduating from Winchester School of Art in 2015, with a BA (HONS) degree in Textile Design, she explored her interest in photography and has since been working  on a collection created by using traditional techniques to innovate ways macro photography can capture reflection and water.


‘Underwater glaze is a selection of un-edited imagery, initially inspired by underwater photography from the barrier reef and Murano Glass. The link between how glass can be shaped and coloured compliments the natural beauty from underwater sea life. I wanted the collection to have a textural look, encouraging an element of wonder. Aimed to question where the imagery comes from and how it was created, each photograph shown has intricate areas showing explosions of detail supported by techniques which blur and abstract the viewers perception.
