Great Exercise In Awareness

Teri Leigh Teed, Fine Art Photographer, Sylva, North Carolina, USA

EWW: What do you think that people notice and comment on the most, when viewing your work?

Teri: The lighting in my photographs is usually what catches the attention of the viewer, along with the scene in Nature. I am a big fan of allowing the elements of the focal point to set the tone. There is no way to rush Mother Earth, so it is a lesson in watching the dynamics unfold. Art is about communicating with another’s heart. And that is what my focus is in each image. At some level, it is my intent to help the viewer find their own inner peace and help bring a remembrance of who they are.

Victor: A lot of. Being an artist in my country is a great challenge) The cultural-historic context in Russia is very specific – in czar Russia most of people couldn’t read and lived very poorly, so art was available only for the aristocrats. Then, after the Revolution it was time for Marxism-Leninizm philosophy, which has its own look on art and artists. It was good time for propaganda and censorship. Besides, if you had no official job, you could be convinced of parasitism as a criminal. (This law lost its power only in 1991!) Till now huge part of Russian people lives in need: need of perspectives, good-payed jobs, competent medicine, humane laws and transparent, opened political life.

But on the opposite, and it’s a paradox, this climate is just perfect to make art. Permanent pressure, need and hunger are artists’ best friends) You always have a lot of conflicts, it’s just left to pick the right one. Only when it’s no conjuncture, when you aren’t payed, when your art is a therapy and a sculptor’s knife just for you, then finally you can say what you really want to say, and find the best «words» for it.

Now some words about artistic challenges. As I have said, it’s a therapy and attempt to solve the conflict. I try to do my art so, that it could make me better, and it’s not easy, because I prefer to dig deep to the darkest and dirtiest parts of my nature. And last, but not least – it’s pretty difficult to surprise yourself, to spread the borders without loosing your identity.

EWW:  Several artists have some difficulty in discerning between photography and fine art photography.  What are your thoughts about the two types or is there really no distinction?

JORGE: For me Fine art photography is a work that was thought of, there was a special care in the creative process, from the conception, the shooting and post-production. It’s about an artist vision, a message, an emotion we want to transmit to the viewer.

“I love to transform natural landscapes into black & white timeless and vibrant scenes. Moving to the desert of California was a revelation into using more color in my work. Who knew that the geometry of local cacti and plants could be perfect subjects for a color wonderland explosion!”

When someone asks me to comment on my creative work, I frequently respond by saying “My canvas begins as a photograph and the mouse as my brush. From that point on, my creative work focuses on exploring shapes, colors, and movement that are in the photograph. I don’t record the steps taken to achieve this focus, so each work is unique and new. This allows me to take a new journey of discovery with each piece I create.

My art is known for its dramatic scenes and fascinating characters. The images evoke thought and emotion from the viewer. Each image invites a visual exploration and a return to its mysteries
over and over again.
