I would not be able to see clearly with out the lenses in my glasses. So I am thankful everyday for the lens technology that makes lenses possible.
Both of my Grandfathers worked with cameras and lenses. As a child I inherited a dark room and a couple old cameras with a collection of lenses. I was influenced by both the art and the science behind cameras. One grandfather worked with cameras in space – taking pictures of earth. The other was a brooks graduate who used photos in screen printing and commercial photography.
For me it’s the physics of light that is so fascinating. It’s especially interesting as a visual artist because I spend so much of my time focused on what I see. Today lenses and cameras in my life are becoming more and move about VIDEO!
