Home Curator’s Eye Adventures in Phenomena and Imagination.

Adventures in Phenomena and Imagination.

Unlike a painting, the expression of a photograph of a real object or objects is somewhat limited by the subject matter. The choice of subject, the lighting, the setting of the location, the distance between the artist and the subject, or the natural way of taking the picture with no alteration at all. It is a fascinating experience to see how an artist captures reality through the magic of imagination.
