About the AuthorMarat Rutman
marat Brooklyn, NY, USA
My approach is experimental, conceptual and artistic. I work intuitively and employ a variety of techniques and processes.
My philosophy toward photography is to create a visually, graphically and psychologically striking image. I seek to transform it beyond the obvious to higher level of visual consciousness.
My intention is not to document objects but to see them in a new context. Although I think of photography as more ”real” than the other visual arts, it allow transformation of “reality” in ways I find interesting. In fact, it is more effective than reality would have been, because in the picture, the nonessential and conflicting interests have been eliminated.
Although my work may move closer to other visual arts, it remains purely photographic in its final form. Although my work may move closer to other visual arts, it remains purely photographic in its final form.
