If you feel that the beauty of life is a no-brainer I consider myself in good company
and I hope you will appreciate what you find here.
The photosence website communicates my pursuit of beauty,
in my view, the kind of beauty that comes with -or as- the presence of the
things that make up our daily physical world.
For me- the art to (re-)create what I find, and the love to pass it on is
pretty much a ‘no plan no goal’ thing.
I just go for it and my instruments of choice are those of any contemporary photographer.
A digital camera, digital processing tools to develop what I shoot and
a professional printer to produce the final work.
The prints are meant to grace the places that belong to your life
with a straightforward artistic expression.
Shot in the simplicity of direct experience they are not intended to be symbolic of anything.
The things they show are seen and represented as an expression of their own essence and its inherent beauty.
On their individual product pages I have used the short description area to write the stories of how they came to be.
Sometimes such a story is a derivitive of the image; afterthoughts, associations or memories triggered by the final image.
I love it when my work makes you feel good or brings you in touch with something that you value and appreciate.
What the images may mean to you and what you can see in them I regard as your
freedom and I am not interested in guiding or triggering your interaction with what I make.
I try to pass on what I see and I hope you enjoy whatever you find in what I present to you.
Perhaps my artist statement is found in the activity of my work itself as it takes place
in the general spirit that life is right as rain.
I sense that my photography carries a sense of gratitude for our capacity to discover this for ourselves.
I consider the stillness that people detect in my images as a byproduct that has little to do with me and perhaps more with the observation that understanding life life is a wordlessr the heart of things.
So there it is anyway I guess, a vision distilled into a statement.
The albums and galleries under the menu tab ‘work’ are alternating selections of work that are generally not shot to become prints per se.
UPDATE: I am planning projects in which the images are sought out to reflect a distinct aspect of a particular theme.
Such projects will be made available as boxed sets of prints. I want to start the first project somewhere winter ’20 – ’21
Let me know if you would like me to make a ‘one of one’ print or when you need to order a print that you don’t see in the shop.
