"Art is not an emotion. Art is the medium in which emotion is expressed."
~ Nadia Boulanger (1982)
Quotes From The Artist
"Until my discovery of Adobe PhotoShop, my art was primarily in "normal" media, although I had dabbled in photography before. I don't consider myself a true photographer yet, as the pictures I take are just one step in the creation of the final artwork. I delight in happy accidents, things or moments that weren't apparent at the time of the photo shoot.
To date all my models have either been friends or girlfriends - someone once jokingly referred to my Web site as my "ex-girlfriend gallery." For a while there it did seem like a relationship would end not long after I took their pictures, which made working on them more of an emotional experience to say the least, but thankfully the model in most of the pictures on display here broke that curse.
I would like to do more pictures in the style of that black & white series, but am not used to asking or approaching strangers to model for me just yet. I'll make sure this changes, somehow.
My 35mm camera is no longer predictable, has no light meter, and was ancient when I got it for art school years ago. I'm using a borrowed camera currently until I can get another one of my own. I never use a flash, even indoors.
I scan the pictures into an equally ancient computer - a Power Computing Mac clone running OS 8.6 and PhotoShop 5.0.2. It couldn't possible handle OS X or PhotoShop 7, so I need upgrades in that area as well. But I make do with what I have, obviously, which sometimes is a source of pride, when I don't get computer envy.
produce so much more if I weren't saddled with a day job. Or if I
didn't have to sleep."
