Atlanta Fine Art Photographer, Lance A. Lewin

Lance A. Lewin skills and visual perspectives come from a richly filled combination of studying the pioneers of photography in the mid to late 19th Century including, Julia Margaret Cameron, the partnership of David Hill & Robert Adamson, and Eugene Atget, for example, and masters of the 20th century, including, Alfred Stieglitz, Man Ray, Ansel Adams, August Sander. In addition, examining the use of light and composition from painters like Johannes Vermeer and Claude Monet to name just two examples, in learning how these pioneers of visual art “see” in pursuit of developing his own perspectives: avoiding visual clichés, Lewin works hard to present new and sometimes unexpected perspectives. Though Lewin’s work is not deemed as “Straight Photography”, it is his intentions to present a canvas that evokes a sense of space and authenticity, whether viewing Lewin’s landscape, portraiture or abstract compositions. 

The "visualization process": the Art of Seeing awakens our senses

The art of "seeing" lies in our ability to slow down, step back and retrace our steps: elaborating on the old trope, "Stop and smell the roses", be cognizant of your surroundings by slowing down to experience the sensations that infiltrate our space we do not notice in our hurried pace. Experiencing more from our environment by opening all our senses to see, hear, smell and taste a wider sampling, stoop low and see what the insects see, or pull back and glee at the grandeur of a majestic landscape. With a stronger awareness of the world around us, then helps expose some of the hidden nuances in helping to create dynamic compositions.  L.A.Lewin

"The camera is not only an extension of the eye, but of the brain. It can see sharper, farther, nearer, slower, faster than the eye...Instead of using the camera only to reproduce objects, I want to use it to make what is invisible to the eye, visible." — Wynn Bullock
