Nature as a Means of Expression to Create Artistic and Contemplative Photos
My artist statement is to photograph the wonders of nature to understand others in order to help them, to know myself better and to better express what I feel.
I have chosen to create photos in an artistic and contemplative way.
Nature is an inexhaustible source of inspiration. Terrestrial or underwater landscapes, as well as its fauna, are always at the heart of my artistic vision.
Throughout my works, I share a contemplative and artistic interpretation of the mysteries of nature.
The use of symbolism is the way I use to make myself understood more easily.
My artistic approach is to create art works of the wonders of nature that are an invitation to dream and introspection.
I use light to show the dreamlike aspect of our subjects, both landscape and animals.
Photography is for me a means of expression. It is an universal language used to translate emotions, feelings and messages.
The technological tools are brushes I use to illuminate surreal elements of the natural landscapes that span the universe captured within the frame of the photograph.
Black and white and color are just two techniques I use to illustrate my states of mind.
To create my photos in the field, I use the natural elements that are available to me.
Then I add the light. This is how I highlight my scenes. It is a back to basics.
I don't use complicated artefacts to create my photos.
I like the simplicity and the contact on the ground.
- I create fine art prints to help you to escape and to reconnect with nature.
- I organize photo workshops to help you to create even more interesting photos.
- I write articles in the blog to share my skills and help you to explore new creative ways.
Amar Guillen is a photographer artist.
His adventure with photography began in 1987 when he prepared and obtained his degree in computer engineering. He began to feel at that time, a real fascination for the sumptuous landscapes which surround him and the fauna which populates them. The need to express emotions in images is already being felt.
Since 2003, the year in which he became a professional nature photographer, Amar expresses in images and emotions the infinite mysteries that conceal nature, developing a personal, artistic and contemplative photographic language.
He devotes himself entirely and professionally to artistic photography. His research crystallizes around the underwater space, the animal universe and the terrestrial landscapes.
His quest is to highlight the preciousness of nature and to sublimate it.
