If you're an artist/art student, don't forget to add a brief artist's statement and photos of three of your art works to either your "comment wall" or "text box." This is your basic St. Louis Art Directory information. Later you may add images, videos, post a blog, and much more.
I use cameras the way painters use different brushes. I am intrigued by the way light is rendered by a camera in general, and the way light is rendered by different cameras using different films in particular. As a writer, I am dedicated to using language to precisely tell a story. I strive for the same effect in photography. I shoot primarily black and white because I grew up with family photos that were black and white, because that was how I learned to shoot, develop and print film, and because black and white decontextualizes the viewing experience. I dream mostly in black and white, and this greatly influences my perception.
Congratulations on your win. I just got the e-mail today and saw your name.
I've exhibited there a few times and always enjoyed the experience. The first time I showed there I didn't place, but I was showing at an art fair out in Washington, MO the next day and a lady came by and looked at my work and said," Weren't you at that gallery in Webster last night?" I said yes, and she told me how much she liked my work and said I'll take that one, meaning my largest print of a fall scene. Was a very good feeling. Well, enjoy and I hope to see more of your work.
BTW, I'm teaching a 3 part workshop in Fenton at "The Studio Corner", starting March 2nd.
