Starting out as a landscape and travel photographer, the heart of Bart’s continuing photographic growth comes from over 20 years of hands-on, real-world photography and experimentation. Bart’s photographic interests range from photojournalistic travel and landscapes to total abstracts. His love of travel blossomed while living in Asia (for four years), and helped develop his eye for spotting and capturing scenes and moments that might at first appear mundane and ordinary.
Bart takes inspiration from a wide range of visual sources to create lasting images for their vibrant colors and intimate details. He strives for the dramatic interplay of light and composition to capture the essence of the moment. While travel & landscape photography remains the heart of his portfolio, his continuing experimentation across boundaries resulted in a process and style he calls “abstract photo-painting.”
Bart’s images are dye infused directly onto aluminum panels, integrating the image with the framing. If you have seen his exhibits at art shows you know the stunning beauty and elegance of this aluminum framing. The shimmering effect is effective under a variety of lighting conditions, creating added depth and texture as you view the artwork from different angles.
Starting with his recent trip to Greece Bart is now combining several 35 mm images to create even larger and more impressive images as super-wide panoramics as large as 70” wide.
Bart grew up in southern California and lived in Hawaii for fifteen years and Hong Kong for four years. Now based in the scenic Coachella Valley he exhibits at art shows around California & Arizona. His travel, landscape and abstract works have been published in photographic magazines and on book covers in US, the UK, Asia.
