Entry Description

This project is focusing on contemporary older American artists living in the San Francisco Bay area. We will come to know “Who they are” and “What kind of art they are doing” thru my work.  I am trying to merge the artist into their works and create a new series of portraits to show these artist’s distinctive personalities. These artists are from different areas of the arts and all are seniors in their 60’s. There are painters, photographers, filmmaker, a landscape designer, a sculptor, an actress and mixed media artists etc. Most photos are taken at their studios, but a few have been taken at their homes. The gears used for this project are Cannon 5D Mark III, Cannon 5DSR, Cannon 24-70mm f2.8 lens, Mac pro Pc and Prophoto B1, as a supporting light. The works will be displayed and showed in different sizes, pigment prints on Hahnemule Fine art Baryta Satin paper.
