Artistic & Fine Art Wedding Photography in Newport, RI
Photo Art- noun · an artistic style that seeks to capture a feeling or experience rather than to achieve accurate depiction
The old masters like Monet, Van Gogh, and Cezanne concerned themselves with feeling and emotion in their art. Even though they were absolutely capable of photo-realistically reproducing their subject, they didn’t necessarily want to. No, they wanted to show the subject like they felt it, not as it objectively appeared. And that’s why it’s so easy to tell the difference between a Monet, Van Gogh, and a Cezanne – because they made their paintings a reflection of themselves.
“Real painters do not paint things as they are. They paint them as they feel.” — Van Gogh
Rigidly realistic photos sometimes leave less room for emotion, personal feeling, and story. Sometimes a photograph doesn’t quite conjure what you felt when you experienced that moment.
Instead of just showing reality as a photograph would, put yourself into a story as you remember the feelings and emotions- the impression- rather than details. This makes your images and memories both more powerful and more personal. Photo art is a beautiful and romantic compliment to your regular photography, and something few other photographers offer.
