Eye of the storm.
When the sky gets dark, and the wind picks up and most people go inside, I take my camera and head for the sea. Solitude awakens something in me, something that I try to capture in my images. In our highly interactive, and technologically connected world, solitude must be sought out. There are those that fear being by themselves. I am not one of those people, instead I seek it out. The eye of the storm, is a quiet place, surrounded by the storm. This is what my photographs are about.
Piet Visser lives outside Boston with his family. He started taking photographs when he was about 10 years old, and spend many weekends with his best friend, developing and printing black and white photographs. Two years ago, he decided to push himself, and make photography more of an art. With the help of a distance learning mentoring program with Jonathan Chritchley, and a lot of effort, he grew as a photographer and artist. Piet started showing his work publicly in 2015, starting with a feature article titled “Chasing the light” in Precise Moment Magazine, an online photography magazine. That was followed by a national juried exhibition in LA Artcorp, Los Angeles California. His work is also a featured portfolio in the September/November issue of Shadow & Light Magazine, a digital publication. He also is has work in Altier 22, at the Griffin Museum of photography. He has had individual photographs shown by Adore Noir Magazine.
