Santa Fe photographer, Brad Wilson, has a background in studio art and photography. The breath of his artistic studies informs his varied and masterful work–his projects are fully realized and explore a wide variety of ideas and ways to present work. I’m presenting images from two bodies of work, Relics and The Glass Wall.
Relics: This series is an exploration of found objects. I am frequently drawn to subjects that are isolated in their environments, like these dried fish I discovered washed up along the remote shores of the Salton Sea. I decided to take them even further out of context so that I could show them as almost pure form, illustrative of the stark beauty of death.
Images from Relics
The Glass Wall: This series began as an experiment with water, light, and the human form. Ultimately, it evolved into a personal examination of the more mysterious and psychologically complex levels of beauty.
