Artist Statement – Richard White
“Unfortunately photography is too common. For many it is difficult to take it seriously and to even consider that it could be used for artistic expression. The wide use of point and shoot cameras and the distorted advertising that implies that with the right camera you to can make images that will be up there with the masters only confirms in the minds of many that it is an easy exercise.
“When viewing an image or an exhibition of images the viewer must make the decision between seen or snap. If they choose seen, then they would have an appreciation of what the photographer is trying to convey or how he responds to certain lighting conditions or subject matter. The first hurdle though is accepting photography as an art form and the realisation that the photographer is expressing their feelings through the medium of photography.
“The wide use of post production with photography these days seems to have given way to the pre-visualization of imagery. Many photographs are taken with no intent, but more in hope that it can be fixed up later. The magic wand will create the magic masterpiece.
“Photography would be nothing without the input of the photographer. The film and the sensor would be useless unless we breath life into them. Without our commitment to the medium or our visual response to the subject then our images would be bland and no better than most snaps.
“With my own photography I am drawn to the beauty and the unusual in nature. When possible I try to convey my vision about what I see. It some ways it becomes a visual communication. I am endeavouring to express my feelings about the landscape and with some luck it may elicit an emotional response from the viewer”.
