Art Is All Around Us- By Brett Noel
I see the world with my camera as a poet driven to share the multifaceted dimensions of our universe. I am most eclectic in choosing photo ops and studies. I am equally drawn to nature, landscapes, and macro work, as well as the unusual in cityscapes. My eye is always searching for composition, much with the eye of an abstract expressionist, sometimes an impressionist painter, and always as a photographer-poet. I am, however, equally moved to capture and illustrate the surreal and explore how the 'eye' can be fooled.
The mantra, 'Art is all around us - take a look', sings through me as I go about with my camera. I am always looking for sharp contrasts of texture and, of course, the magic of light and shadow upon a subject.
My approach is a poet-in-awe. Whether in cities or towns, I am most fascinated with diverse and sharp contrasts that include nature against human-made structures. I am perpetually impassioned with my lens to behold and share the 'extraordinary' in what may typically be considered 'ordinary'. In cities, I can often be found in alleys and in the woods, off the trails. In nature, I am looking for the poetry of the obvious. In both, I am very drawn to shared geometry, the play of light, symmetry and the eccentric/boldness in composition.
