About this series: Makros
In this series of photographs, Louis explores the world of texture with everyday natural organic objects via macrophotography.
The beautiful natural patterns and arrangements on ordinary fruits and vegetables are presented with a twist. The vegetables and fruits captured up close reveal intimate textures and intricate design only nature can offer.
About the artist
Hi, my name is Louis Au. I was born on the other side of the planet and now I make my bed in Toronto. Along the way I fell in love with photography, earned a BFA and learned figure drawing among other things. Curiosity is vital. I am passionate about seeing the culturally diverse world through the lens of my camera while capturing stories at 1/125th of a second.
I’ve been called a travel, event and fine art image maker. Photography has been my profession for the past 20 plus years. From my early days inhaling chemicals in the darkroom to pixel peeping in front of my computer screen now, the creative process of image making remains unchanged. It is always about “capturing” the moment, regardless of the medium.
