RUSS CHRISTOFF  is September's Featured Artist @ Edgewater Gallery

Mendocino Coast photographer, Russ Christoff, writes of his creative approach to the medium:

Our perception of the world is based on time.  We don't perceive or experience our environment in 'fraction of a second' snapshots.

This is countered by taking longer or multiple exposures - using the camera to translate my experience over time into a visual form.  My interpretations of the North Coast are meant to evoke dreamlike images and, perhaps, take the viewer to another place.
