Artists and Their Art is fine art environmental portraiture project
and focusing on contemporary older American artists living in the
San Francisco Bay Area. We will come to know who they are and
what kind of art they are doing through these photographs. I am
trying to merge each artist into their work and create a new series
of portraits to show these artist’s distinctive personalities. These
artists work in different areas of the arts, and they all are seniors
in their 60’s. There are painters, photographers, a filmmaker, a
landscape designer, sculptors, an actress and mixed media artists.
Most photos were taken at the studios of each artist, but a few
have been taken at their homes. The style of each photo varies
quite a lot and all portraits are based on the style of each artist’s
work.
