Photo Play: Moku Hanga App and the Sydney Opera House

April 6, 2019

I thought you might enjoy seeing the results of my favorite pastime – playing with imagery.

Moku Hanga is an IOS app that filters your images in something akin to a Japanese woodcut style. At least that is what the app description says. I think it just abstracts the colors and finds edges in a beautiful way.


I love abstract art and I love architecture. With a camera in hand I’ve always loved filtering out much of the view to find the most striking lines and shapes.


Turning the lens on an angle, zooming in, seeing things in a new light.


Th architecture here is abstract to begin with. I love punching up contrast, editing the frame, softening or strengthening the colors to emphasize certain shapes or shadows.


Sometimes I love the abstract and the close-up too much and will find that I’ve come home with nothing but details and no context for where the place what. I have to consciously remember to step back and take an overall photo.


I see these images being translated into my textile art in future.

    Love your abstracts. I also use the Moku Hanga app for my buildings – it adds so much depth and color, as well as edges as you say.
