Like many photographers John Fitzsimmons went digital in the nineties. This allowed him to go from simply taking photographs, to making photographs. Over the years he has developed two disparate styles. The first he calls Fantasy Composites, which are a blend of several photographic images into a single work that is fairytale like visually but have adult themes: sex, bigotry, drugs, global warming, and so on; the second style is similar to traditional Urbanscape/Landscape photography. These works tend to depict a world decomposing slowly into oblivion, not unlike himself.
