The Pure Image Works
"When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice" - Robert Frank
The Pure Image Works create images of a wide variety of subjects, specialising in the photography of flowers, nature, and landscapes. The aim is to create images that transcend the mere recording of a subject and become more artistic, with compositions that are a celebration of colour, light, shape, and intricate detail with the minimum of digital manipulation. These images are presented for sale in a number of varying formats including greeting cards, framed and unframed photographic prints, and glass tableware.

Alpaca de Perú
As a Peruvian, Patricia is proud of her heritage: alpaca fibre.
Since the Inca Empire artisans in the Andes used to yarn, dye and knit the alpaca wool. Nowadays there are important factories, which do the job, but the manual process is still practised and there are lots of artisans whose livelihood depends on these practises. Alpacas have a very positive impact on the in environment as they have soft padded feet which does not cause pasture damage; at the same time they have a range of 22 natural shades so the need to dye the fibre is reduced.
Patricia creates high quality garments such as scarves, shawls, beanies (for children and adults) and socks all made from silky, soft, fine alpaca fibre, which the Incas described as “a gift from the gods”.
