Shooting from unconventional angles and using long exposures (up to 30 seconds), photographer Mike Lindwasser creates vibrant, almost un-earthy color tones in his images.
“Ordinary objects and structures come alive and share their extraordinary beauty during this slow and deliberate process,” states Lindwasser. “I strive to share the beauty of the ordinary with my audience.”
The extensive time of the exposures and the variety of brilliant, unique colors produced by his process underlies another hallmark aspect of Lindwasser’s technique: his minimalist approach in the use of light, and the fact that he most often shoots at night, focusing on using available light sources such as a street lamp, a sign, or a window. Using such available sources is what guides his art.
“I enjoy a challenge, so therefore I have minimized my equipment and limit myself to two lenses and a digital SLR,” says Lindwasser. “I strongly believe this approach allows me to master the images depicted in my mind and fully bring them to life. Observing the man-made structures and nature around me is what keeps my passion growing.”
The combined use of creative angles, long exposures, and the occasional multiple exposure has allowed Lindwasser to exist within his own genre of photography. Mike Lindwasser’s photographers will be on display and for sale at Art Bar in New York City until January of 2011. There will be an opening reception on November 3, 2010 from 6 to 9 PM, curated by LG-Reps. For more info, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
