MOMENTARILY

Michael Solis

Is it possible to stop time? Can a person actually stop for just a moment to notice, to realise, to contemplate their surroundings? Their perspective? Is fine art photography doomed because of digital imaging? Is everyone a photographer now because they have a camera on their phone? These are just some of the questions I pursue in my practice.

My sources of inspiration are as varied as the types of images that I create. I adore the canon of master photographers in the early 20th Century like Stieglitz, Steichen, Weston, Adams, Cartier-Bresson, et. al. I sometimes wish to have been one of their contemporaries because of my beginnings in black and white film photography.
