'This world we live in is but thickened light.' Emerson

Quotidian, liminal, transcendent; these are states I see in the world as my perception and the light vacillates. Light has the power to give the quotidian transcendent properties. As the process proceeds I act in liminal space.

In my photography I use light to cast the ordinary in extraordinary terms. When light is unusually focused, or especially diffused, or particularly brilliant I pounce. It is a process of triangulation; object(s), geometry, light; when these three factors converge. I seize the fleeting opportunity.

My work is inspired by poetry and Transcendental writing such as the Ralph Waldo Emerson quote above and this one:

'Do not be caught by the sensational in nature, as a coarse red-faced sunset, a garrulous waterfall, or a fifteen thousand foot mountain... avoid prettiness, the word looks much like pettiness, and there is but little difference between them.' Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Artist's Statement: Frank Winters, Photographer
A self taught photographer, I started taking photos casually 25 years ago and become more serious once I retired in 2005. When I traveled on business I took photos wherever I went. London, Amsterdam, Sydney New York, Boston. I still have a camera handy and take photos whenever I see something that moves me. The result is eclectic: nature (I am a conservationist having served as a Conservation Commissioner and on the board of a Conservation Trust) street photography, and oddities I come across serendipitously.

I moved to Cape Cod in April of 2012 and I am interested in finding a gallery to work with. Please contact me if you represent a gallery.

Artistic Vision
I attempt to capture a personal perception of what I see, be it beauty, humor, geometry, story, people, action or decay. I love finding artistic grist in the quotidian as well as in the magnificent ends of experience's spectrum.

Some Accomplishments
In 2009 I founded a cooperative art gallery, Art On Main, in Westford with some partners and sold many framed and matted pieces of my work. In addition, my images have been published as cover art and illustrations for cultural and business publications.
