“Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it”. Confucius
Welcome to my website!
I've been shooting photos my whole life.
Few years ago, I figured I'd better get a camera.
Now, we work as a team.
It's still about discovery. I'm happy about that.
I like to photograph things as I happen upon them. Same goes for people. I don't 'stage' life to fit the camera, I use my camera to record the art already there.
I'm drawn, although not exclusively, to earth tones, and also (apparently) images of isolation, be it either through a minimalist exploration of an object, or the observation of people, and much of my work includes social commentary. While visual appeal is always my goal, it's my hope that my images also 'say' something, or stir in the viewer memories, thoughts, ideas beyond the specific two dimensional image. Life is a combination of drama and comedy, dark and light, and I am equally comfortable with both sides of the coin.
Although I do do 'straight' photography, I also occasionally challenge the boundaries of photo editing with software, thus creating an image which better conveys my intent. At times, this is done with an application of texture, or an overlay, and occasionally some digital painting.
I live in the desert, and dream of places NOTdesert; some known, others unknown. '...miles to go, before I sleep...'
The big ole white 'fine art America' watermark that's stamped in the lower right hand corner of some of the images does not appear on sold work. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have ANY special requests regarding sizing, cropping or color changes, and I'll be happy to work with you to co-create the image you want. Any other questions or comments? Email me either here, or at Lin@LinHaringPhotography.com
Presently, the default site view is 'Artwork'. Galleries may be viewed by clicking the 'galleries' tab at the top of the page. Not all images are in galleries.
Thanks for looking at my images, and ESPECIALLY any comments you care to leave: Encouragement is always appreciated, and anything which can help me grow as an artist, valued; as the poet Bob Dylan observed, 'he not busy being born is busy dyin''.
