Hey, look at that – you found me! Thanks for taking the time to check this out and to learn a bit more about me; I really do appreciate it. Too often, we become interested or captivated by art without taking the time to learn about the artist. But, let’s face it, can we really keep the art and the artist separate? I don’t think so and, I’ll bet, you don’t either – otherwise you wouldn’t be here, right?
As you know, I’m a photographer who shoots fine art. Yeah, I know, “fine art”. It’s the thing everyone claims they do but no one can define. I’m trying to do that with my artist’s statement, which right below.
In the meantime, who am I? I am a transplanted Canadian, having moved to Chicago in 1998 from Vancouver. The original reason for moving here has now been consigned to the annals of history; a reason no longer of any significance other that to be a starting point for where I am now.
Oh, and puh-leeze follow me on Twitter from the podcast account (@PolarizingImage).
Podcast, you say? Yup, every two weeks, listen to me, Rick, and Tony go on (and on and on) about the art and philosophy of photography on Polarizing Images.
Okay, now for the promised…
I am a fine art photographer whose vision is about balance between the subject and the negative space. The images I shoot are minimalist in nature, devoid of everything except those elements that are critical to achieving an aesthetic of simplicity and purity.
This is balanced harmony.
