Photography has changed immensely since it's inception in the 1800's. Add the abilities of computers to the mix, and photographers are becoming more artist and less technician. Using images that incorporate form, color, design and scale, they now mix images, replace colors and create pieces that are individual and can be nothing but 'art'. The three 'photographs' here are all examples of the modern photographers art. From the digitally enhanced images of Gary Gibson, whose work looks more like water color than photo to the monograph quality of Jessica Jantzen, the modern photograph is a story. Linda Guenther combines images from various photographs and manipulates them to produce the image she wants.
These artists spend time not only out taking the photo, but hours of computer time to refine, re-create and define the piece. At Tallgrass Art Gallery we are proud to represent these photographers, plus Michael Bryan (see bleow). All have worked to produce pieces of exceptional quality and using the newest techniques in digital art.
