Russell Young, photographer/ author
“I live a double life as a fine art photographer. One half of my life is spent in nature photographing the voice of silence. These landscape photographs come from a revelatory, wanderer’s process, a reflection of the peace and the quietness of breath that one finds beyond the grandeur and grace of expansive vistas. As they reveal a view, they also invite you to witness and experience nature in a raw timelessness, peacefulness and tranquility can be found by looking to nature: in the dawn, in the twilight, and in the depths of night, places of quiet and stillness still exist.
The other half of my life is in my studio and occasionally at locations where I created my photographs by building installations/sets, adding props often casting characters, then photographing the completed installation. The studio work is inspired by life experience, personal stories, my dreams, literature, visual arts, and performance art.” —Russell Young
