My Imaginary Friend

Cat Burton – My Imaginary Friend

My Imaginary Friend is intended to reveal how I imagine the world when I’m taking photographs for my artworks. Since many of my images are fantasy composites, I often imagine what it would be like if a deer, wolf or flock of birds were in the scene. I very often frame my photographs with this in mind so that I can add creatures to them in post-production. This composite is made from two images – the original landscape with the tree (Calton Hill in Edinburgh) and a separate photograph of the deer.
