ARTIST INFORMATION SHEET
Photographer Craig Acord
Philosophy Photography is much like learning to see, as if for the very first time, the
essence that lives and luminesces within everything. It is a miraculous
visual music that can be heard and felt, a subtle magical force that is born
of trusting my intuition enough to act upon it. My hope is for the viewer to ‘hear’ it too.
Out of a world with infinite mosaics and their multicolored tiles, I attempt to isolate the singular link that defines the ‘song’ of an image,
simply and without extra or competing elements. This happens best
when I am drawn to a very specific vantage point in time and space. The
harmonies in natural landscape seem to parallel the landscapes of mind
and spirit, from which I must be mercilessly selective. In the eye of the
beginner there are many possibilities; in the eye of the expert there are only a few.
Style Fine Art and Fashion, in color and Black & White.
Technique Work solely with Canon 5D Mark II digital cameras. Photographs are usually produced on Epson Professional state of the art printers, widely recognized for their rich black & white and saturated color quality, archival permanence, and superlative
sharpness and luminosity.
Background I first became fascinated with the photographic arts as a teenager in Council Bluffs, Iowa as a high school student. From there, I went onto study photography at MIT in Milwaukee and earning an AAS degree. Next came Ohio University where I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in photography. Over the next 30 plus years, I have continued to explore every aspect of the photographic arts, from film based still photography, to total digital specializing in black & white photographic fine art.
