Black & White: A Collage of Winter 2012
I haven't worked to much with black and white photography, but I do like how these turned out. I usually miss the color when I go black and white, but this time I think these photos really show light and reflection very well.
It's kind of weird that when I paint I love black and white, but with my photography...not so much! Why is that? Maybe a nice balance for me though.
The nature of life is change, a slice of time which is unique from the moment I capture it. I try and stay tuned into the presence of each moment, so I am able to see the beauty that surrounds me. Even though beauty is subjective, it is something I recognize unmistakably and immediately. Beauty has the ability to inspire me. What is the purpose of art if not to inspire and conjure emotions and ideas, whatever they may be? From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course to canvas and sculpture. I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it will not always be obvious, but my goal is to have the viewer see in a new way and feel a new appreciation for what is around us.
