About the Book
As a photographer obsessed with minimalism and negative space, a nice day with a clear blue sky is about the best thing i can imagine. On these days the sky offers the perfect backdrop for isolating a subject and pulling it out of context. To view it simply as it is or perhaps in a more abstract composition, as it isn't.
"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.
