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.
