    From my MythosLogos project
    Before Thomas Edison died he was said to be working on drawing for a spirit phone to communicate with the dead. This is the machine in action.

    The ancient Greeks made sense of their world not only by logic but by myth too. They saw it was necessary to view things in these opposing ways in order to have a balanced understanding of their lives.

    I feel we have moved out of that balance, unconsciously letting go of that mythic element to our lives. As a result we've lost touch with our own personal vision and creativity. We let a dogmatic scientific materialism unconsciously rule everything, from our dreams to our notions of the spiritual.

    So in this series I try to reflect on this, creating images that sometimes imagine a world where logic has been sidelined by the mythic, or images that mock our need to analyse and break down those parts of our life that we should truly respond to more intuitively.

Laurence Winram

United Kingdom Born in: 1968

My father and Grandfather were both magicians and this family interest in mystery and illusion has followed me into my own life as an art photographer. I believe we only see a small glimpse of the full richness that we are capable of. I like to explore those unknown elements expressing them through metaphor, symbolism and surrealism.

I have a number of projects that I am adding artworks to. My main current ongoing project is Mythoslogos - The ancient Greeks made sense of their world not only by logic but by myth too. They saw it was necessary to view things in these opposing ways in order to have a balanced understanding of their lives. 

I feel we have moved out of that balance, unconsciously letting go of that mythic element to our lives. As a result we've lost touch with our own personal vision and creativity. We let a dogmatic scientific perspective rule everything, from our dreams to our notions of the spiritual. 

So in this series I try to reflect on this, creating images that sometimes imagine a world where logic has been usurped by the mythical, or images that mock our need to analyse and break down those parts of our life that we should truly respond to more intuitively.
