Artist’s Statement – Bruce Kemp

I love to both write and shoot. Its like the old saw “a change is as good as a rest” and that doubly applies for creativity. I only wish I could also paint and compose music. What has influenced me the most has been the old Life Magazine photographers. They were story-tellers with their cameras. My photo influences have a profound impact on the things I write and my writing influences work with what I shoot.

Artist’s Statement – Laurie Carter

While I make part of my living as a magazine editor, I am a first and foremost a writer/photographer. For me, the two are inextricably entwined. When I photograph a subject, it is nearly always with an eye to complementing the written word; for a book or article already in progress or yet to be determined. Often my photographs help me to form the words, while the words I have in mind sometimes suggest the image I need to make. I also sell photographs separately to magazines and as fine art.  I particularly enjoy the art images, as they give me an opportunity to experiment and develop my vision in the digital dark room.
