Photographer Jim Bremer describes his work as mining for diamonds. You have to sort through tons of dirt to extract a single gem, which is carefully cut and polished, and ultimately becomes a valued possession with emotional attachment.
Bremer's process gives his images a hand-made look and feel. Central to this process is a Waycom tablet featuring an electronic drawing pen/brush. He prints the images on Velvet Fine Art Paper, an archival quality substrate that resembles watercolor paper. Nine separate inks including four variations of black are used in a printing process that produces great depth and rich quality.
Bremer received his formal training in art, design, and photography at Missouri State. His photography is driven by a desire to create unique work of the highest possible quality. Experimentation and discovery are the driving forces behind his style.
