Dennis And Johnye Burns, Southeastern United States Member Since January 2009 Artist Statement Humans have been expressing themselves artistically in various forms since the dawn of creation, but photography is a fairly new arrival in the art world. Since the day in 1839 when Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre announced his invention of the daguerreotype, art has never been quite the same.
Photography is a wonderful tool, having the ability to almost instantly communicate the same messages as complex paintings or sculptures. With photography, we can and often do document all our moments, from the tragic to the sublime. It's even possible now to see the features of a child before birth, and frame that picture before the baby utters his first audible cries.
In our galleries, you will find images - moments, if you will, which convey peace and tranquility -and sometimes a bit of whimsy - and which speak of a simpler life. I don't know about you, but with life these days being the very opposite of peaceful and tranquil, it sometimes helps to surround ourselves with objects which remind us of nature and the outdoors. Here, you are sure to find a special image to help bring a little more calm into your home or office environment.
Thanks for visiting!
Dennis has been pushing that shutter button as long as I've known him - since 1972. Johnye - that's me - has been involved in photography about 10 years. Our favorite subjects are scenic and wildlife, and we enjoy traveling in order to add to our portfolio.
