"Dappled Leaf"

Black & White Photograph

Created by Russ Martin
this item has not yet been reviewed  
This is a picture of a leaf of the common landscape plant the hosta. It was made one afternoon in June, and was lit by the rays of the late afternoon sun shining through an oak tree overhead. The dappled sun, together with the other details in the picture, combine to produce a winning image.

This picture was one of a five image series which won First Place in the flora category of the 2008 International Photography Awards, and First Place in the entire Nature division of the 2009 Prix de la Photographie Paris (PX3). The print was produced on mat surface fine art paper using archival pigment inks which will not fade for over 300 years. It is printed on 16.5X23.5 inch paper which produces a border of 1 inch on the top and bottom and about 3 inches on the sides. The print is titled and numbered on the bottom left front, and signed and dated on the bottom right front. It is one of an edition of 50.
Dimensions: 14.5in H x 17.9in W

About this Artist

Russ Martin

"I followed in the footsteps of giants, but when theirs ended, I continued on my own."

Russ Martin photographs subjects from both the urban and natural environments. His pictures reveal an uncanny ability to depict subjects in ways that surprise or inspire the viewer. He hopes they stimulate the observer to a new appreciation of the subjects in front of the lens and of the medium of photography as a form of creative expression.

Russ Martin employs professional digital cameras. However, as a photographer classically trained in the style of Ansel Adams, he first honed his craft using large format film cameras, an enlarger, and chemicals in a darkroom. As a result, he has developed a perfectionist approach that is evident in his new work, which is printed on fine art papers using archival pigment inks and a professional Epson printer.

Russ Martin is a second-generation photographer from the small town of Clinton in upstate New York. He received both a Bachelor's and an MFA degree in photography from the State University of New York. After earning his degrees, he pursued his own projects and teaching, while interacting with well-known photographers and gallery professionals from around the country.
