Approaches to photographic art II: life

Authors: Myles Lee


In part one of this paper, “Approaches to Photographic Art I: Life Imitates Art”, previously published in JOVS (1), I sought the sources of painterly technique in natural settings. By the comparison of my photographs to selected works of 19th century painters Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, and Georges Seurat, I illustrated how these masters might have discerned in nature the templates that evolved into the impressionist brush techniques for which they became famous.
