Artist Statement – “Como lo veo.”
George Thomson Photographer

My eye is impressed with the minutia of the grandeur and the everyday. The immense landscape, the up-close, zoomed-in piece of the whole and the person on the street awaken my view.

I strive for simplicity. In-camera exposure and composition is the philosophy of my art. I never PhotoShop my photos but occasionally crop or change the contrast, as I did in my younger days as a black and white darkroom photographer.

My artistic goal is accessibility and easy viewing. I look for subject matter that is interesting to look at and known to the viewer, or should be. I enjoy it when the viewer recognizes the subject of the photo, but is not quite sure what it is… “What is that?”

I approach artistic openness through everyday subject matter and making my photos easy to obtain through reasonable pricing.

While I often shoot nature and everyday objects as subjects, I am most satisfied with challenge of street photography. To photograph people in their own environment, on the street in real-time is most interesting to me.

Recently it was said to me, “Your photos are like someone seeing the world for the first time.” I was moved as I realized that meaningful compliment is my photographic philosophy.

Thank you for sharing the world as I see it.
Gracias por compartir el mundo como yo lo veo.
