Photography equals painting with light, while painting uses pigments to create colors shapes and image.
“Eyes Wide Open” explores the Hue of colors and its impact on Street photography. As Isaac Newton controversial experiment in placing white as the reunion of all colors, we’ll start from White to Black, From Black and White film photography to digital photography and all colors of the rainbow, for your eyes to slides from one image to next.
For Bruce Byers “ the photograph becomes visual art when it is seen”.
For Jessica de Vreeze “ Art is an inspiration, it should trigger an emotion. My mission is to create an image that will bounce its positive energy around and beyond you.”
