C.J. Peters, Royal Oak, MI Member Since June 2007 Artist Statement My paying job as a law professor exercises the left side of my brain. I like photography because it exercises the right side. I think what photography uniquely brings to art is a depiction of the real -- of subjects as they actually were when a photo was taken. But I'm also attracted to bright colors and interesting geometry and dramatic visual contrasts, and since I can't draw or paint or sculpt, photography is my only means of illustrating those things. So most of my favorite photos are attempts to bring out the real essence of their subjects in a graphically interesting way. In addition to the small selection of photos offered for sale here at Imagekind, I have many more photos on display at the Flickr website linked above. If you're interested in purchasing a print of a photo that is not available here, or in using a photo in some other way, please visit my Flickr site and contact me via Flickrmail. Thanks for stopping by my Imagekind gallery.
