Winter's Veil No.2

Black & White Photograph

Created by James Bourret
this item has not yet been reviewed  
In his "Winter's Veil" series, Bourret delves into the properties and aesthetics of the Water's Edge. The changing landscape, the effects of current and water volume, light, and temperature all make the river s edge different from day to day. Seasonal progression brings further changes, with winter bringing the growing and changing veil of ice along the bank, increasing until the surface is solid. Even then, the ice changes in shape and transparency on a daily basis, thinning, clearing, cracking, buckling, melting and freezing again, and eventually moving tectonically downstream. These highly abstract images seek to transcend boundaries of formal and scale recognition. Flowing lines and curved forms in the ice are interrupted by spiky, angular forms and layered textures. The seemingly random crystalline forms and structures evoke associations with landforms (aerial photography) and micro-crystalline structures (photomicrography) and leave room for endless possibilities of interpretation. Limited edition pigment print on archival rag paper. Paper size is 17''H x 22''W. Dimensions refer to image size.
Dimensions: 14″ H x 21″ W

About this Artist

James Bourret

"I seek to create richly evocative, emotional images in nature, reflecting the mood, form, colors, and patterns of a scene. My best images are often highly abstract."

Fine art photographer James Bourret is a native of the San Francisco Bay area and currently lives with his family in Ketchum, Idaho. He is motivated by a reverence for the natural landscape and a concern for the future of our environment. He has been a practicing architect since 1985.

Photographer James Bourret uses finely honed shooting techniques and digital equipment to capture rich, evocative images in nature. His techniques parallel those used in the traditional darkroom. No compositing or other image manipulations are made. Prints are carefully made by the artist using 100 percent cotton rag papers and archival pigment inks for long lasting, UV stable prints.

James Bourret received his professional education at the University of Texas at Austin, but his interest in making photographic images began long before, in high school art courses. Traditional darkroom techniques learned there have given way to the digital darkroom, and the sense of freedom gained by leaving the darkroom behind has opened many new doors. After a long hiatus from serious photographic work, Jamie acquired his first digital camera in 2004 and began making photographs again.
