Art: Stage Mothers by Artist Richard Holland
What makes a photograph more than just a snapshot is the way textures and tones, the blending of light and color, and composition tell the story of the moment. The more you look at a piece of photographic art, the more you see and are moved. As a Social Landscape Photographer, I look to capture personal and unusual moments during apparently ordinary events in the lives of individuals; the way they act and react in and to their environment. This past fall I recorded a local dance company's 10th Anniversary production the Nutcracker, from auditions through final performance. In this piece, Mothers cram the hall outside the rehearsal studio early in the process. They appear to be in serious discussion. Ultimately, the focus of the piece is the little girl in the foreground who is retreating from the chaos.
