Luminous Photography by Bryan David Griffith

Agave, Red Rock Moutain Wilderness, Arizona

It's odd how some images stick in your mind. For me, this is one of them. Of all the stunning natoinal parklands photography Bryan David Griffith exhibited at the 57th Street Art Fair, I remember this one most. What is it? What makes me remember that image more than all others? If I understood that, I would understand more about photography, and more about what makes a great photograph, or at least one that works for me. All I know right now is that this agave seems suffused with a cool and yet vibrant light, plus that point of view of all the leaves reaching up has a certain energy. More might be discovered as I spend more time staring at it. Or perhaps you all have some insights. In any case, I wanted to share this find, and hope Bryan will forgive my crude method of including his copyright.

As I paged through Bryan's "Listen to the Wild" portfolio on his website, I found more images with arresting light features, like this one. Thankfully, we've corresponded a bit and I hope to be able to interview him soon on the role of light in his work. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy.
