Like classic mediums, photography shares all the same basic characteristics, such as composition, light, tonality, texture, mood and more – but it’s unique in that it captures a slice of time which will never be repeated. In this modern world where time races past at an accelerating rate, there is comfort in having the chance to stop the clock and record one defining moment. It gives us the chance to explore a scene, scrutinize the details, and discover beauty where seemingly none existed.
For John Arnsdorf, photography is more than art. It is conduit to become immersed in an environment and live in that moment…truly experience the moment in all its details. The process of setting up his camera, analyzing the light, fine tuning the composition, and waiting for the decisive moment to fire the trigger is peaceful, meditative, and meaningful. Each shot is an evolving study of the subject and its place within the universe.
