What is it about the art establishment that requires a certain type of bio, or artist statement written in the third person to deliver my message as a creative artist?

Actually I think it’s pretty obvious. – I love photography, particularly black and white photography. I was introduced to photography over 46 years ago and have been Selfie-DeRidder-Antiquescommitted to producing images that move me. I love the intricacies of nature, the play of light on the subject in front of my camera lens, whether found naturally or composed in my studio.

And while the subject in some cases may seem like a literal rendition, they are far from that as they are in black and white , and represent what I visualized the final image to communicate as I tripped the shutter.

I have given away more prints as gifts over the years, not because my work is bad or even mediocre (I have some big name photo artists who say it’s pretty damned good, but I don’t drop names) but because I just have not had the time to dedicate to marketing my work. I would rather spend my time creating art that reflects my short journey here at this time. I have no illusions that I am creating work that will be historically significant or make me famous, now or after I am dead.

I just love the whole creative process of making fine art black and white prints.If you are here, I hope you will take the time to look around, download some of the free stuff, give me some feedback and maybe even purchase a print if it speaks to you.
