Bob Handelman, Guilford CT Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement My travel adventures provide me personal journeys of reflection and discovery. This fuels my ongoing fascination with capturing energy. Like life, sometimes this visual energy is loud and vibrant. At other times it’s serene and calming.
Travel has been one of my life’s great teachers. Exploring different continents and their diverse cultures have revealed for me both how small we are as individuals in the world, and just how small our world has become.
At home or abroad, I find life’s magic in the minutia -- finding layers of meaning, intrigue, and nuance in the ordinary. I seek the delicate interplay between the natural world and abstraction. I play with shadows, reflections, light, color, texture and graphic compositions to create a new visual story.
I hope my images prompt you to stop and look twice, more closely, more deeply, to spark your own curiosity with this complex world we call home.
Formerly of NYC and citizen of the world, I live with my wonderful wife, Kim, and incredible daughters Lexi and Cassie in Guilford, CT. My photo studio is also in Guilford, CT and travel near and far on behalf of clients and my travel muse. My studio handles both commercial and fine art commissions.
