'I recommend that you have my photographs printed on Metallic, Acrylic or Metal substrates. These choices bring out the depth of the color and tone.” http://fineartamerica.com/artdirectory.html
Bobbi Mercouri seeks to make photographs that transcend the medium’s ability to record a realistic interpretation of a scene. Mindful of scientific studies of perception and how the human brain filters visual information, she crafts images to communicate her feelings about what she photographs.
“There’s magic in the light,” she says, “and magic in the details.” By finding and featuring the magic, she hopes “to enable the viewer to see past the brain’s filters and experience your personal vision, the emotional content of each piece.”
Mercouri’s strategy is to stylize her images, emphasizing the elements that are emotionally evocative and muting or removing color to reduce verisimilitude.
A self-confessed “computer nerd,” she naturally took to Photoshop as an ideal tool to “bring out the picture behind the photograph.”
Although her intent in photography is to share her vision with other people, Mercouri does not like to title her photographs. “I feel that beyond my vision of the scene are the individual experiences of the viewer, and I don’t want to influence that response” with words. Instead, she relies on her control of pictorial elements to communicate “the emotional content of each piece.”
