Susan Spiritus is bringing in the New Year with the help of Tony Hertz, Chris Kovacs and Harold Ross. All are newcomers to the gallery. The trio brings a combination of technique, enigma and eye for the natural landscape that is sure to inspire the viewers.
- Tony Hertz has 37 years of professional photography experience during which he has photographed selected U.S. Presidents, the Queen of England, Pope Paul, celebrities, musicians, famous sports figures and covered major news and community events. Some of the major magazines and newspapers his general work has been published in: Time Magazine, Los Angeles Times, New York Times Magazine, USA Today, National Geographic WORLD, Sunset Magazine, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle and the Christian Science Monitor. He’s also worked with major industrial and advertising clients ranging from the Cotton Board, Chevron and Zenith Watches. Tony divides his time shooting in the field, editing images and working as an adjunct photography instructor teaching traditional darkroom photography and digital photography in the Cuesta College Fine Arts Department in San Luis Obispo, CA.
- The Divergent Lands series is inspired by Chris Kovacs’ love of science in combination with his passion for photography. Chris is intrigued by the possibility of multiple or parallel universes and when combined with his unique vision the results are often mysterious and dreamlike. For his day job, Chris Kovacs is the publisher of two well respected on-line photography magazines, Adore Noir (black and white work only) and Adore Chroma, which features only works in color. For many years, Chris Kovacs was only known from his publishing successes, but … it was time that the public see and learn to view him as an accomplished photographer!
- For 25 years, Harold Ross has been experimenting with the specialized technique of light painting which has given him the ability to show subjects in a different light, so that the viewers can appreciate them in an unexpected way. The process of light painting requires that light is meticulously applied to each image and requires that the photographer work in a completely dark studio while opening the camera for an expended period of time while he paints light on to the image. This ultimately reveals greater shapes, textures and colors. Harold Ross says that he is basically sculpting the image with light.
