PATTERNS IN NATURE
WITH GUEST JUROR, JIM BRANDENBURG
Photo: Ernst Haas
Juror Jim Brandenburg; All photographs rely upon a certain balance of shapes, forms and patterns to succeed in rising to the level of asking for a second or third look; all the while it is assumed that a wonderful wash of complimentary light is present. But here our goal is PATTERNS. Not the ART 101 class description in basic composition but a discovery of, or a personal view of that moment when balance fills the frame. Or perhaps the contrary, an edge that strikes the eye in just that right way that keeps bringing one back for another look. Sometimes breaking the ‘rules’ brings a photograph to the highest level.

In American Splendor, Rich Frishman engages in exploring the pre-apocalyptic vernacular landscape of the United States. He imagined himself an archaeologist documenting the future remains of a lost civilization, filled with remnants of the sublime and mundane. There is a
curious beauty to the commonplace, a heightened sense of grandeur at the intersection of the natural and the human landscape. Read about it in the Star Tribune Arts Spotlite!
