Lance A Lewin
Fine Art Photographer/Instructor/Writer
For the most part, I am a self-taught photographer learning camera skills and a wide scope of perspectives from a richly filled combination of studying the pioneers of photography in the mid to late 19th Century and masters of the 20th century. In addition, 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.
The embodiment of photographic techniques developed, learned and expanded in both the 19th and 20th Century 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. It is vital students of photography receive the same amount of attention to the attributes defining “The art of Photography” as seen from a traditional posture, before (or at the same time) digital post-production manipulation be introduced into the curriculum.
