Join me was we talk and share about her life as a photographer and teacher.
Join me in this fascinating interview with Gregory Beylerian, Artist and Photographer from Los Angeles California as we talk about doing what you love and growing into that space as an Artist.
Gregory Beylerian is a multi disciplinary contemporary artist that was born and raised in New York City. He studied Art, design, photography and philosophy at R.I.T. and then lived in Italy for two years where he received a Masters degree from Domus Academy. (more…)
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
― Rob Siltanen
Man is always playing “Catch Up” with the environment. It seems to take way too much time to realize that a problem truly exists. Those that point it out early are often called “Alarmists” or just plain “Crazy”. Did you know it took over 300 years to adopt limes and citrus by the English Navy? They knew about it but look what happened when they did take action. (maybe not a great example but it is human nature)
When it comes to our Biosphere and the Environment we are at a critical time in our existence. The current denials, dismantling of our protected lands and regulations is unprecedented. Though we may not all agree no how the Climate is Changing, we can agree that it is.
What we can’t deny is the effect we are having on the planet and ecosphere with our trash, chemicals and physical damage.
There are 5 stages individuals and Society go through:
We seem to be somewhere between Denial and Bargaining. Denial that there is a problem puts all at risk. The rollback of regulations on clean water is one example of Denial. It is also a perfect example of what greed will do. (more…)
I am at a crossroads on this human penchant to leave a mark on almost anything. We paint, carve, notch, scratch and write on mother nature, walls and just about anything. Kilroy was here…
This is where it gets sticky. If it’s old and in a sense historic, we revere it. A record from the past. Petroglyphs, pictographs and anything that left a trace of our ancestors. Today, with a the population growing and more and more access to our natural wonders, leaving a “historical” trace is an eyesore and in some cases, permanent destruction or defacing of our land and sites. They are not using natural plant inks and dyes, but rather spray paint without thought or care for the next person who will visit.
I travel a lot into our National Parks, remote back country and Monuments. As a photographer I am looking to experience and share the beauty of our world. At times it is simply awe inspiring and humbling to be there. Then suddenly I am reminded of the world we live in. Of those with no clue to what they are doing and their lack of caring or even understanding what they have done. (more…)
Welcome! Announcing my new venture. Where Art and Photography meet!
I have been sitting on this concept and what to do with my time as a photographer and artist for a year or two. It finally become quite clear on what direction I needed to go in this last Fall.
I needed to focus, to have some photography goals and to narrow in on what is important to me. Also something that would push me to do more complex and better work. Work that is not only beautiful, but has a purpose and something to say.
Having said that, not all of what I will shoot has to be provocative or have any other purpose but to be beautiful art. Some will push out ideas, concepts and make a statement. Love it, hate it or be ambivalent, I can only present the images and hope they make a positive difference the the world. (more…)
