Richard Fenker is a photographer and author who lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico and Fort Davis, Texas. His strongest artistic influences were Picasso, Georgia O'Keefe and Ansel Adams. Today, most of his landscape work is done in the panorama format using a Fuji 6x17 camera. His large landscapes, typically done on a fine watercolor paper or canvas, have the feeling of paintings rather than photographs --- largely because of his selection of images and management of light, color and time.
"For the past ten years I’ve been finding the same transcendental boundaries in natural objects such as leaves, stones, shells and butterflies and in a variety of more abstract landscapes. These represent experiments in time and space often using soft focus to create patterns with light or over time; or in the case of my stone portfolios, to find new landscapes in tiny settings."
