My Artistic Vision: A work in Progress
I think one of the most difficult challenges for an artist is to fine one's own "vision" and over the years my artistic vision has been a work in progress. My work has changed over the years, years ago I loved to photograph landscapes with Kodachrome slide film, but one day I came to point where I felt that the Kodachrome film didn't fit my vision and longer, so I started shooting my landscapes in black and white because I felt it was closer to what I wanted to express in my prints. I also decided that I wanted to to expand my vision to include other subjects, still lifes, nudes and portraits. For the foreseeable future I don't see myself wanting to change from shooting black and white film, but the way I interpret my subjects may change as long as I am having fun.
