My personal photography is of images I capture outside my work. Subject matter varies from documentary to surreal. It is play time.
Over the years I have played with and learned from many wonderful artist. These friends (not all photographers) have helped me improve my techniques, develop my skills, and push my artistic boundaries.
Brian Rice, on one of his blogs, states …..”Art is usually about self-expression because the artist feels strongly enough about what they are doing to try and put it into a form that they, and others, can come to terms with. This product of their self-expression can help others because there will always be people who feel the same way but they cannot express it themselves. These people will identify with the artist and draw encouragement, purpose, and excitement about the thing expressed.”
“One of the functions of the artist is to make a statement of some kind. It may be a simple statement, the beauty of the landscape for example, but it is a statement. Somehow the artist is trying to communicate an idea, an emotion, or a purpose in their work.”
I am always excited to try new things in my work and my personal projects.
Here are a few images I have created over the years.
