Call for Entries Accepted Artists
Artist Peter Martori
Phoenix, Arizona, USA
Dark Phoenix 1
Fine Art Photography
I have been photographing Phoenix when the harsh summer light fades and you begin to feel relief from the heat. It is a time that connects me to my childhood when we spent every minute we could outside in the evening coolness before dark and our parents’ calls for us to come in. This photo is part of a series where, during long exposures, I move the camera in order to capture the the energy and movement that is part of life that ‘still’ photos often do not reflect. Setting off the flash at the end of the exposure sets the foreground and other reflective surfaces. I hope the combined effect evokes a scene where light isn’t just reflected, but is energy itself.
