Serene night on the Gulf of Mexico

My friend and fellow photographer, Peter Silvia made an astute observation about a recently curated collection of my images showcasing water.

“You know Wayne these images of water are really about serenity”.

Images can be more about feeling than the fact of the subject.

This is particularly the case  when when we are in a state of union with the subject we are observing.

I hope when you look at the images I’ll share in the coming days you find that they give you a moment of serenity.

Meteoric light abstraction.

Light is to photography what paint is to the painter.  I made this image with colors contained in light.  In the studio I used prisms to break up the spectrum of light and create this meteor of color and light.

Reflection of boats, Martinique

While scouting locations for a Nautica fashion shoot in Martinique I saw this wonderful play of color.  The color was from boats in the marina reflecting onto the surface of the water.

I love the feeling of this image.  It is as if I am small and moving among the tulips looking up at the sun coming down through the petals and leaves.

Can Beauty be a Political Statement?

Blue rods of light

I speak for myself. Civility in America’s public arena is under challenge through crass, vulgar and denigrating speech. The growth in tolerance and egalitarianism over the past few decades is facing a setback through intolerant language and actions. When I watch tv news, read newspapers and listen to the radio I come away with the sense that America is in a dark threatening time.

As an artist what can I do to contribute to a more civil, tolerant, inclusive and positive society?

Can beauty be a counter to ugly language and behavior?  I believe it can. The laws of science and human behavior support the principle of balancing forces. I offer beautiful images as an artistic and political counterbalance to the ugliness. I invite you to join me in the affirmation of life as we strive for refinement in our lives. What we visualize will have an impact on our attitudes and behavior. This is not a naive call for putting our heads in the sand or pretending that there aren’t a multitude of challenges to the common good. For me it is a recognition of the negative and a choice to turn toward the positive. In the face of darkness and ugliness, light and beauty is a revolutionary action.
