Russell E. Murray - REMAGES - Portrait with his digital SLR in hand.


This photo blog and website presents the images of Russell E. Murray a.k.a.: “REM” (c’est moi).  I share my initials with the acronym for “Rapid Eye Movement”, the eye/brain activity that indicates deep-sleep dreaming is in-progress; the place where the best (and most interesting) thoughts and visions happen.

So, in the spirit of “R.E.M.” (dreams, not the band, though I did meet Michael Stipe once at a restaurant), my images and multimedia are created and delivered under the fake moniker, pseudonym and secret identity “REMAGES”.  Question: does using a “nom de camera” or “nom de lens” make me a ghost-photographer?

How was REMAGES born?  In the beginning… Basically, I fell in love with my camera at the age of 7; nothing was safe after that!  Tools (all digital now) include Canon, Leica, Lumia, Lumix, iPhone, Hipstamatic, and other camera and editing apps. Go to the Contact Page for a list of places you can see (and purchase) my images–both still and sparkling–under the “remages” identity.
