Artist Statement

Fog on the hills of Tuscany, Italy
“My goal is to photograph the subject in a specific way that makes the spirit, life force, God, whatever you want to call it, more obvious. It has always been there, but through my choice of focal length, f-stop, shutter speed, focus, composition, lighting, the time and weather conditions of the capture and post-processing, I will try to present it in such a way that you will see it more clearly than any other way. If I’m successful, you will get the sense that there is more to life than meets the eye and the interconnectedness of all things.

The transitory nature of existence binds everything in the material world. Careful observation reveals the beauty within each fleeting moment.” —Bret Culp
