Lance A. Lewin
For the most part, my inspiration from behind the viewfinder comes from a richly filled combination of studying the pioneers of photography in the mid to late 19th Century and masters of the 20th century, (i.e. Julia Margret Cameron, Alfred Stieglitz, Ansel Adams and Bob Kolbrener, for just four examples) while also studying art history, drawing and design, all in the pursuit of developing my own artistic interpretations. Though a lot of my work cannot be deemed as “Straight Photography”, nonetheless, I stay clear of trends that can lead to what some refer to as hyper-reality and composite alternatives, instead, maintaining a photographic canvas that does not transcend the inherent psycho-physical characteristics that define a photograph, thus presenting work evoking a sense of reality and authenticity, regardless if presenting work in color or as Black and white renderings.
My philosophy on teaching photography embodies photographic techniques developed, learned and expanded in both the 19th and 20th Century, and I feel should serve as the backbone to pedagogic material for students of photography in the 21st century and beyond. As such, my methodology of teaching photography is structured to embrace traditional photography skill sets and their application into the digital photography revolution.
Please, visit my website to learn a lot more about my perspectives from behind the lens and teaching philosophies. My office door is always open to take specific questions or just chat on anything about photography. You can reach out to me via email at: [email protected] Thank you.
