FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY by BRUCE BURR
The Chinese symbols for art, I am told,
combine EYE, HAND, and HEART.
This is the way that I create.
I photograph scenes and objects that pique
my imagination... The EYE
Then I alter and combine these images... The HAND
Creating an image I feel takes on life force of its own, an expression, a mood... The HEART.
Much of my imagery is inspired by my walks in wild places and the work of many painters including Georgia O’keeffe, Rene Magritte and Salvador Dali.
I often pose still life, together with landscape, in an unlikely combination.
These images are composed, from driftwood, dried seaweed, shells, bark, roots, seed pods, clouded sky and birds in flight, overlaid with the beauty of flowers that I have found growing wild or in my friend’s and neighbor’s yards.
I visualize life, rising out of earth and sea, a blooming flower rising up, with vivid color announcing its unique spirit, as the bloom unfolds.
