Entry Description

I love the way light and shadows play against the complex textures of the plants. One of the biggest challenges I've found is how do I interpret such complex subjects that have varied texture and form and deliver this in a simple yet powerful way to the viewer. The answer for me is to eliminate many distractions as possible. Which is the reason I prefer black and white as the primary approach. This allows me to concentrate on how the light and shadows work together wiht the form of the subject in a raw and beautiful way.

About Photographer

For nearly 30 years now, Jack’s passion for photography and been focused on his love for the landscape and our natural environment. Searching for the “Lure of Light” has taken Jack to many remote and unique places as well as enhances his ability to develop “the art of seeing” through both Grande landscape and detailed still life As I continued to reach out, explore and reflect within the serenity of nature, I started to see and feel. Rushing streams soon became the ambient noise affecting calm. Landscape grandeur created the sense of humility. Spring blossoms invigorated, fall colors realized finish and fresh winter snow renewed. Chasing the light of these days is akin to chasing a dream. Sometimes dreams do come true.
