The Transience of Power, Castle Ruins, Kerry, Ireland, 2008
Q~ Bret, simply put, your landscapes are stunning. They speak to an
erosion of structure and the demise of what once was. A former glory,
seemingly lost, but you have somehow brought it back to life. What is it
about this subject matter that speaks to you?
A~I believe that art is a means of working through the often complicated
and important issues of life, both for the creator and the viewer. From
a young age I have struggled with the idea that life ends, which I know
has been a significant influence in my choice of subject matter.
Investigating themes of time, mortality and spirituality through
photography has informed my thoughts and feelings helping me to work
through it all…
