Digital Images are created by performing mathematical transformations on image files. The basic tool is a computer rather than an image file.
In the early twentieth century surrealist photographers experimented with super-imposing two images. I use this approach as well. By working on separate layers and fusing them into one image.
I avoid using the usual commercial programs, and prefer to work with freeware, and some of my own code. I do this to avoid falling into conventional styles; and it gives me a chance to explore possibilities that would otherwise not appear.

Producing art from digital photographs allows collaboration with other people. Although collaborative art is possible in painting, it is difficult. Because the images are created from digital photographs, it is easy to collaborate with other people.
