Interview Arielle Chambers
Something is to be said about a beautiful perspective. All too often, photographs can be consumed with commotion-lack of focus, lack of artistic premise, lack of quality. However, internationally award-winning fine art photographer Kevin Saint Grey avoids common chaos of today’s photography and maintains his style: the art of monochromatic and chromatic images, reductionism, and abstraction.
The Los Angeles based photographer masters the art of detail and precision. Saint Grey incorporates everything minimal to create breathtaking images. He has an evident fascination with architecture and landscape, as displayed in his 2006 Mono series. 2008’s collection, Nocturnes, focuses on sky and is completely monochromatic. Though true, images greatly showcase the vastness of the sky through shots of the sun setting and moon rising. Zero (2011) incorporated paper into his fine photography. He utilized black space in conjunction with the whiteness of the paper to create floral, delicate imagery. Saint Grey returned to his architectural niche for the 2009-2011 series, Stealth Bomber. He emphasized lines of buildings by photographing at extreme angles. Images in the Chroma (2006) series played with color and light. Saint Grey recently developed collection; Dystopia (2010-2013) explored photographic reductionism. By method of camera movement during exposure, he created a composition of lines. These intentional blurred lines created such a movement, such photographic genius, and such enigma.
