Pelicans: A Photographic Study

on August 20, 2015

For my latest assignment, and perhaps for a more select series in the future, I’ve pursued a beautiful but challenging subject: pelicans.

The photographs below were taken in the British Virgin Islands, famous for these majestic birds, so much so that even a small island there was named after this sea faring avian.  The pelican lineage has prehistoric roots, living beside humans in such distinct ways that ancient Egyptians have woven them in to their mythology, at times being called the “mother of the king”.

The Artistic Dichotomy—Assigning Creativity

on August 18, 2015

Photography, like other art forms, is about so much more than the finished product. It is about the independent life and spirit that the finished product evokes and the stories that it tells. I believe no photograph has ultimate meaning simply by virtue of its existence. It is in the process of being experienced by those who see it that a photograph develops meaning and value.
