About William Durfey

I am a native Californian, born in Los Angeles, and I have lived in San Jose since 1975. I have been an amateur photographer since receiving my first 35mm film camera as a high school graduation present. I began working with digital photography and creating my art in December of 1999 when I bought my first digital camera, a 1.3 megapixel Panasonic that used a 1.44 Mb floppy disk for storage. Fortunately, the photography hardware and software have evolved tremendously over the past 16 years!

The primary goal of my work is to create images that delight the eye and that uplift the spirit of those who view them. A very important element in much of my work involves symmetry - if not the whole image, then various parts of it. I also love bright colors, intricate designs and interesting textures. Sometimes, I also add a touch of humor.

Two styles dominate my work: 'organic' and purely abstract. The organic images clearly display recognizable objects such as leaves, rocks and water. The abstract style provides little clue as to the subject of the original image. When looking at an image, it is often difficult for me to determine what the original image was. And, as you might expect, there are hybrids of the two styles.

A NOTE ABOUT FACES: Many of my images contain 'faces' which may at times be disturbing. These faces are the natural result of the process of mirroring an image or section of it. I like to think of these faces as guardians of their natural environment very much like the temple dogs, lions and fierce warriors that guard Buddhist temples. They are forces for good liberated from hiding by an artistic process.
