Researching different perspectives of the natural world, venturing at times to create images that are more fantasy then reality, Stephen Spartana’s HumanNature, Life in Layers is a selection of images that celebrate the intimate connection of humans with the earth. Spartana’s work utilizes a number of images which function in the same way that painters use brushes and paint palettes; his tools are a combination of various analog films mixed with digital and paint media. His intention is to create a provocative image through layered commplex compositions that blend details of shapes, shadow/light and color, coaxing the viewer to look deeper and celebrate further the bond we have with all of nature.
STEPHEN SPARTANA holds a BFA in photography from the Maryland Institute College of Art. While continuing his successful commercial career, Stephen has returned to his love of fine art photography which began in the 1990’s with 2 exhibits at the Gomez Gallery. Last year, his Interwoven series won international acclaim with Honorable Mentions at China and Tokyo photography exhibitions and a Bronze Award at the Moscow International Foto Awards.
