Impressions of Winter
For the past 2 years I have been working on a collection of images entitled “Impressions of Winter”. As an artist and photographer, I am often drawn to the more intimate scenes in nature and I think that it has allot to do with my personality and an advanced awareness of the small and often unnoticed details in the natural world. I call these things “Small World Spectaculars”. For years I chased the light and the grand landscape in search of provocative and emotional images of the wild landscape, and while my quest for the sublime light and landscape has not yet ceased, I find myself more times than not searching out the small details in the larger picture. This thought process probably has allot to do with where I live and what I most often shoot. The east coast is not the west! We don’t have big mountains, vast deserts and wild seashores and I think it provokes a more sensitive and thoughtful approach to the smaller details that are often overlooked by West Coast photographers. That being said, I would probably find it quites a challenge to produce the same caliber of work as guys like George, Guy and Marc out west. They all bring a flare of creativity and a special understanding of composition and light that I don’t often see by there West Coast comrades.
So in my travels and adventures, I have begun to assemble a portfolio of work called “Impressions of Winter”. Over the last couple of months, I have been revisiting these works, re-processing them and putting them together as a collection. I thought I would share with you all what I have so far. Of course this is long term project and like all things creative it will continue to evolve over time. This is what I have so far and I plan on introducing even more images that I am working on in the next few weeks. Enjoy!
