Description When I saw how the green palm trees framed this wooden Ft Lauderdale Beach Lifeguard stand with the red surfboard leaning against it and the blue sky and water as a backdrop, I had to shoot this serene South Florida image. by Joe Gemignani
Joe Gemignani, Wilmington, NC Member Since September 2009 Artist Statement Born and raised in New York City, photographer Joe Gemignani lived in Miami, FL for 30 years and now resides in Wilmington, NC. Always in pursuit of visual stimulation, he’s traveled worldwide to photograph the people and places of diverse cultures. Whether using sophisticated professional camera equipment or a Polaroid SX-70 bought on eBay, the award-winning photographer captures the essence of beauty in the small details most people don’t notice.
Much of Gemignani’s Polaroid art and fine art photography contrasts the physical and ethereal beauty of tropical Beaches, rural and urban environments with images celebrating varied lifestyles and architecture. For this reason, Gemignani’s photographs have been selected for permanent display in corporate Art collections and public areas across the United States.
