About the Book
Looking at the world through a rectangle is the simplest way to describe my work and a way of seeing that I tend towards whether or not I have camera in hand. Part Zen practice and part found art, these photos represent often mundane moments and details which otherwise go unnoticed. Removed from their contexts, they allow the viewer to view their subjects--or lack thereof--in the sole context of the rectangle itself.

"The world through a rectangle" is the simplest way to describe the photography of Stephen M. Gray. His works are part photographic art and part Zen practice. His objective, often minimalist compositions bring new light to life's mundane moments and details through the focus and context of the photographic rectangle. Though he has spent most of his adult life in such technical pursuits as software and Internet development, picking up the camera has reacquainted Stephen with his childhood goal to be an artist. Stephen lives and works in Austin, Texas with his wife Amanda. In addition to his fine art photography, Stephen also engages in event, portrait and stock photography.
