I use the camera as an additional eye, a third eye, enabling me to take a closer, and in many ways, a more profound look at the everyday things that surround us. My quest is to create images which illuminate the beauty around us. This beauty is often
overlooked, yet becomes readily apparent with that closer look. It is highly gratifying when
someone tells me that because of my art they have actually seen something for the first time that they had walked past time and time again, yet had never before noticed.
Creating new ways of seeing through interpretive vision
However, there is more to the art than just a closer look. It is also about my own artistically based interpretations of what I see. By traveling extensively, working with other artists, and spending many years studying art and art history, I have developed my own unique way of seeing. This knowledge and experience which I am able to draw on, informs my own vision, propelling me to create images which both celebrate the beauty that surrounds us and at the same time encourages the viewer to add to and to develop their own interpretations of what they see.
Photography is the medium I have chosen to help me facilitate seeing. The raw shot is like a quick glance or observation, a possibility. I then spend many hours or even days composing with digital tools in order to create the work of art.
The mediated, refined image is my vision, my truth and a moment in time captured forever. It is my way of inviting others to join me in experiencing the world in a new and vibrant way and my way of sharing with others an appreciation of the beauty and complexity of the world around us. You can take a look at their work and be the judge, these guys doing some great stuff with lettering and did wonders for our gallery.
Handknits by Miriam Rosenthal
After years of photographing the work of other fiber artists, I am photographing my own fiber art. I’ve been knitting and selling scarves for the last few years and now they are available from my website.
All scarves are knitted by me, by hand, and are of fineluxury yarns. Many of the yarns are handpainted in very small quantities by independent producers.
Each scarf is unique .
If you are interested in acquiring a scarf, please contact me. Inventory changes are constant and due to the nature of my supplies, most scarves, once sold, are not precisely duplicated
