Before I became a wedding and editorial photographer, I received a Master’s in Fine Arts, specializing in photography, from the Rhode Island School of Design. While these were my most challenging years as a student, they were also the most thought provoking and expanding years as an artist. I was completely immersed in art making, art critiques, art lectures, art theories, and of course viewing lots of art. Not to mention all of my friends were artists. It was a total art nerd-a-thon. Now nine years later, I still have a complete love for making art and looking at other artists for inspiration. I have an extensive library and weakness for buying art books and not all of them are photographers. I find great inspiration in all sorts of visual imagery and look forward to sharing with you over the years some of my favorites.
To start off, this is a artist that I learned about today and in fact she is not a photographer but uses photography to document her sculptures. This body of work, Monumento Mínimo, is simple, elegant and hauntingly beautiful.
