Ray Scanlon

digital photography

Ray Scanlon photographs, among other things, industrial ephemera and objects from nature. Sometimes he juxtaposes them. Sometimes he tries to expose their character; sometimes he tries to hide it. He often resorts to digital trickery. He always tries to please his eye, a cruel master, and loves when an experiment turns out well.

Scanlon has a BS in Mathematics, but English courses kept his GPA above water. A former assembly language programmer, he uses the same bit manipulation and pattern detection skills to make digital photographs. He cross-trains by writing short nonfiction (with the occasional exaggeration). His photographs have appeared in several online literary magazines and at the Attleboro Arts Museum, the Zullo Gallery, and Peter Miller Fine Art Photography Gallery. He's also online at The Eyes of Old Man Scanlon.
