Photo-Impressionism Wall Art

In modern photography, the new technology enables us to create images so in-focus and crisp -- you can see the grain and the colors so vividly -- that it's like you're standing right up against the subject. It looks almost "hyper-real," but many photographers do it. It is my nature to go against the tide, so I asked myself: What can I do in the opposite direction? What could I do with modern photography tools, but keeping strictly in the realm of photography? I hit the streets, testing lenses, locations, indoors and outdoors, levels of "blur," etc. but the results didn't speak to me. It was frustrating, this itch that kept returning and I couldn't scratch. Ultimately I went to a forty year old M42 screw mount lens, and Eureka! A breakthrough! It was a photograph of The Brooklyn Public Library at Grand Army Plaza with a passing cyclist. It reminded me of an Edward Hopper painting and the elements of Impressionism that influenced him: The themes of architecture and nature, a brighter palette, the play of light, but also in that it wasn't about the detail, fine lines or exacting of color -- the subjects were people, locations and activities that are recognized as Iconic to daily life. I now had a concept to explore. I coined it "Photo-Impressionism." The goal was not to mimic impressionist painting, but to consider the elements while creating something original with my camera.
