Tenuous Hold by Connie Bransilver. All Rights Reserved. I want to conspire with the viewer to tell a story in one captured moment. We are each involved. The viewer’s life’s experience shapes his response. My curiosity, patience, timing and knowledge of the subject bring an enigmatic instant to life, Cartier-Bresson’s ‘Critical Moment.’ The image presented on paper, canvas or fabric is unchanging, but the interpretation can be unique to each viewer. It is that multi-layered story that I aim to tell.
Using the best possible camera and field techniques, mastering the plays of natural light and shadow, I present the story my mind saw. Mine is the art of the natural world and of the heart.
If, as I believe, photographs are self-portraits of the artist’s vision, then mine are emotional, clean and clear and straight forward images of captured light as the essence of life. And they are invariably joyful. With me, silence the cacophony and isolate one element.
