I am attracted to photography, partially, for the ease with which it crosses over into the world of art. To catch a glimpse of the art in everyday surroundings, the photographer must remain the observer of the event, rather than the choreographer of it; he must remain on the sidelines, seeing, capturing the interplay of light and shadow, preserving the inner truth of each moment in time.
Black and white medium holds a special significance to me, as it almost succeeds in conveying an evocative, romantic feel of the decades past, when the summers were milder, the days – longer, the lines – simpler.
I hope this monochrome shoot in the mid-summer of 2017 in Frisco gives the viewer a glimpse of what I see: the incongruity and the duality of life, the perfect imbalance of darkness and light which is at the very foundation of the visual arts.
