Steve Ivanov, Chicago Member Since August 2009 Artist Statement Steve Ivanov has been a photographer for over twenty years. The subject matter of his stunning images varies greatly, as the course of his life has carried him to many exotic places. However, a true reflection of his quality as an artist is his ability to make even ordinary subjects emit the same sense of exotic and unusual beauty as those of faraway places. HDR photography has become an outlet which reconciles his background in both Photography and Science. The creative, visual, and compositional side of photography fused with the curiosity, clarity and precision of science.
Steve specializes in still life, nautical objects, oceanic scenes, unique architectural structures, landscapes and much more. Steve freezes a special moment in time; a drop of rain on a rose petal, a waterfall, an autumn colored tree; and makes it immortal. He recognizes the need for unique artwork that only artistry and technology in combination can provide.
