My Bio Pictorialist photographer Ron Resnick began photographing while studying film and art history at San Francisco State University. After spending a dozen years as a film editor, he took up photography again in 2002. That same year he saw an exhibition at the Getty Center of nineteenth century French photographer Gustave Le Gray. He had admired Stieglitz and the Photo-Secessionists, but was so taken by Le Gray's large scale landscapes that he decided then and there to forge a new style in the pictorialist tradition. Pictorialism has a long and storied history in California that he hopes to revive and carry on in his work. His subject matter is the vast California wilderness, and especially the beautiful but fragile Mojave Desert. He was born and raised in Los Angeles and resides in Altadena, California at the foot of the San Gabriel mountains. His website is www.blurrylens.com
