About the Book
“Through My Eyes” is a portfolio of my best photographs to date. The vast majority was taken in central New Jersey during the first half of 2011.
The book contains images that I grouped together on facing pages to complement each other in theme, color (or lack thereof), texture, boldness, line or shape.
There is no central focus, but rather, abstractions or 'slices' of ordinary objects.
I bought a Kodak camera when I was around the age of sixteen, and I shot everything in sight while running through countless rolls of film. It became more than a hobby as an adult when my work began to be recognized as art by several prominent art professionals. White Lights Dancing with Tammy, one of my first books, is a compilations of several years of photography reflecting how I see the world. My poetry in White Lights Dancing withTammy is a new found passion that I hope to foster. ~Michael Antonio Martin
