I am a relatively NEW artist while at the same time, very much an OLD photographer. I have been capturing images for more than 50 years and have become proficient enough as a photographer and printer to consider my best images to qualify as an art form.
Thirteen years ago I switched from film to digital capture. The image is captured as a raw digital file, processed in Adobe Lightroom and/or Photoshop and printed on paper or aluminum sheets using a professional quality ink jet printer. This change from film to digital has allowed me to better control all aspects of creating the final image – capturing, processing, printing and presentation.
In November 2009, I retired from the corporate world and focused my energies on improving my skills as a photographer. The goal being to capture, process and print images that would stimulate the viewer’s consciousness and be more than just another picture.
This summer I am introducing a new collection of images that are printed on specially treated sheets of aluminum. These unique “images on metal” will be on display at one of Southern California’s premier fine art shows, Art-A-Fair of Laguna Beach during the months of July and August.
By controlling all of the steps necessary to create the final image, I am able to duplicate what my “mind’s eye” envisioned at the time of capture. I trust that your ‘mind’s eye’ will enjoy my images as well.
Previous exhibitions and art fairs include the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach (2012), the Tubac Festival of Arts in Arizona (2012) and galleries in California and Arizona.
