Photographic Impressions.

 

After seeing the Impressionist exhibit from the Clark Museum here in Montreal I am compelled to offer up these images in hommage. When Photography entered the scene some of the painters thought it was the end of their craft and profession. But, according to Renoir apparently he said “now the shop keeper only has to go to the photographer, worse for us better for the art of painting.” ┬áThe Impressionists concentrated more on the art of expression and feeling. I feel some what of an similar┬ásituation with photography in the 21st century. So many people with cameras capturing…well the only way to go is deep down inside ourselves and our feelings…the camera is now at the mercy of expressing the abstract and creative concepts as well as our daily relality.
