Artist statement

“Unfortunately photography has become too common. For many it is difficult to take it seriously and to even consider that it could be used for artistic expression. It is the viewer who must make this decision. Do they see what the photographer is trying to convey through their images?

I feel I am compelled to photograph. Always looking for the beauty before me. Trying to make images from my heart with technical information from my head. It’s a visual communication that with luck will elicit an emotional response from the viewer”. – Richard White, 2019
