The Egg of Creation

PrizeFinalists in Create (art)
ArtistPeter Hammer

I am a fan of largely minimalist surrealist images to tell a story or reveal a concept. This image is a surreal, symbolic look at evolution and creation. From the ancient pyramids to modern architecture our buildings have evolved driven by the creation of new life. New life itself begins with an egg inside a female ovary fertilised by a sperm. We are drawn into temptations often by low-hanging fruit where umbrellas symbolise trees.

Peter used to work as an electronic engineer/IT developer but now spends his time working with photography interspersed with travel. His interests in the photography field range from landscapes, street photography through to fine art and creative image making. Peter's travels have taken him to all 7 continents and around 40 countries.
