This book features the fine art photography of Rick Hanger. Rick has been a great friend of mine and it was an honor to assemble and co-edit this collection of, just a few, of his best images. I also need to give a big thank you to his wife Char for the idea, encouragement and assistance in the editing process.
Born in Wayne County and raised on the family farm located in Apple Creek, OH. I was always drawn to the excitement and seemingly never-ending inspiration of an urban environment. This led me to make my home in the heart of Akron where I have lived since 1997. Having attended both Malone College and Kent State University I decided to leave behind a degree in theater arts for a career in business. Interested in photography and art from an early age, my work didn't begin to really take shape until the advent of the digital photography. Creating under the pseudonym, mobius faith, and mobius faith imaging; prints of his work have been seen in local exhibits in Ohio, also at the esteemed Espai[b] Gallery of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, Spain and in an online Italian culture magazine called POSI+TIVE. He also maintains an online presence with blogs and, the photo-sharing site, Flickr. His first book, AS I SEE IT, is a collection of photographs by longtime friend, Rick Hanger.
