About the Artist
Photography intrigued me as a teenager, I attended my first workshop in 1973 at The Naples Mills School of Arts and Crafts near Ithaca, New York. My college career yielded a BA in photography from Goddard College in 1978 and included a semester at the San Francisco Art Institute.
“My vision is to capture images that embrace and reach beyond the here and now. Photography is an alchemical process – the subject is the raw material, the gold is an image that expresses universal truth beyond that subject, one that makes us think and remember, and ultimately, see the world in a new and different light.” – Barry Toranto
Each image is a single exposure, multiple dimensions are not created by layering. Looking through glass is always surprising. Changing the camera angle changes the reflections; shadows change the way objects appear or disappear. Inanimate objects in a window can seem to have personality, a storyline. Time and space exist on different terms.
Abstraction is juxtaposed with elements of traditional photography, blending unique environments in each frame. When subjects are not immediately identifiable, images reach for the viewer’s imagination, rich with possibility, evoking curiosity. Dramatic colors, patterns, and lines become ornaments of mysterious portals, portrayed thru the reflective nature of glass. The viewer is challenged to look deeply and consider the magic!
