Photography has been Steve Golder’s passion since the age of 16. Given free use of the camera and all the film his dad could purchase, Steve began experimenting with photography and has been toying with it ever since. Willie Nelson was once asked where he finds the melodies for all of the songs he writes. He said that they are simply “out there…” floating on the air waiting to be written down. This is just how Steve finds his inspiration. There is scarcely a place or a time that he hasn’t tried committing to a visual posterity. Steve is always looking for that special moment where the interplay of light, shadow, form, line, color, shade and reflection comes together to create an image. His images range from the highly abstract and impressionistic to the very traditional and representational. They are intended to bring to the viewer a different perspective of something at once familiar and at the same time, somehow, obscure. He lives with his wife on Lookout Mountain, TN
