We are excited to introduce Neil Shapiro, who uses photography to capture the magnificence of nature. To achieve this, Shapiro shoots “wide open” for a shallow depth of field, emphasizing focal points. His photographs are direct and crisp, leaving no room for ambiguity.

Recently, he has been experimenting with placing a visual-emotional factor into his images through Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) to evoke nostalgia, gently blurring pixels to infuse images with a softer quality. Shapiro’s aim is to address his audiences on the importance of the protection and preservation of our planet. He hopes that his images play a small role in giving people reasons to keep fighting for the environment.

“Throughout my career as a Director of Photography I’ve cultivated some specialized skills. Commercial cinematography requires the ability to photograph any person, place or thing in an interesting way in any circumstance. My fine art photography tries to showcase the same aptitude. I mostly enjoy photographing the natural world but because of my background in cinematography, find many other genres compelling. My hope is that my photos are both appealing and have an emotional impact.”

    FEATURED ARTIST: FENGZEE YANG

    Art | June 6, 2024

    "My art-making emerges as poignant expressions of ineffable yearning. Each crafted curve and enigmatic form become models of my emotions, a visual poem encapsulating the essence of my longing. Themes of "missing" reverberate through my work - whether it’s an empty hook, drawer, or cradle - all serve as metaphors for the profound gaps within the human experience. It symbolizes the absence of function, the lack of context, and the void of knowledge; it is a reminder of the uprooted aspects of our lives". Read more
