This gallery is for BVAA member Dennis Smith.
I create images of life and nature to fulfill my need to experience, share, and preserve what I find beautiful.
My Dad started teaching me photography when I was eleven. I learned composition and technique on his Rolliflex, developed film, and made prints. After music and corporate careers, four kids, and thousands of snapshots, I returned to photography in 2009.
Painting entered my life in 2014. When visiting beautiful places, only rarely is the light perfect, the weather beautiful, and the season peaked. In a painting, I can perfect the scene.
I favor Pictorialism over Modernism, a preference that is evident in both my photography and painting.
My home is in Uxbridge Massachusetts adjacent to the Blackstone River Valley National Historical Park.
