|Photography - "writing with light"|
|I have been producing
quality photographic images since 1962. You have seen my work in
countless newspapers and publications nationwide including The
New York Times and The Congressional Record.
Currently, you will find my work at the Antigo Visual Arts (AVA) Gallery in the Langlade County Historical Museum, 404 Superior St., Antigo, WI. . . Northern Roots Artisan Market, 2914 North US-45, Antigo, WI. . . And the Wisconsin Visual Artists Guild Reaching New Heights Gallery, inside the Marshfield Clinic, Weston, WI. All of these venues offer a wide variety of framed fine art for purchase.
|Photography has completed the progression from film to digital images. Many seasoned photographers bemoan this. However, it, is as inevitable as our progression from the horse drawn carriage to the motorcar. We either embrace new technologies or we let the world pass us by. Digital is neither better or worse, it's simply what is. Early in my career I discovered the joy of seeing this world through the careful melding of orthochromatic (black & white) and panchromatic (grayscale) images. The process was painstakingly slow. Patience was essential. Today's digital darkroom provides the photographer with virtually unlimited artistic expression, something, up until now, only painters have enjoyed. Patience still remains a virtue, but it is now more rewarding than ever. - Jim Martinsen|
