Abstract Landscape Photography
Burlington, VT 0
Through my photography I seek to find my own sense of peace in today’s crazy world.
Focusing my attention on the sunset for a few minutes is a good way to ground me in the moment and the amazingness of our planet. But unlike most photographers, I’m not trying to faithfully capture what that moment looked like in my eyeballs. The beauty transcends the details, and I like to photograph the essence or the soul of the place.
I do this through movement; no tripods here. I wiggle, shake, dip, and swing the camera, which imparts an impressionistic feel to the imagesmaking them look more like a painting than a photo. The chaos of movement is tamed into a serene abstract landscapea skill I wish was transferable to the real world.
Creating these images is a great source of calm and renewal in my own life. I like to be able to save those moments of peace, and share their beauty out into the world. Because we could all use a little more beauty, more peace, more stillness in our lives.
