Artist’s Statement

​

“I’m fascinated with details and odd juxtapositions.  As I look at the world around me, it becomes obvious that everything can be easily categorized into five basic photographic groups: Pretty. Rough. Funny. Scary. Generally cool stuff!”

“I strive to offer no philosophical or cosmic point of view. Only a moment in time. Some images have positive, universal appeal. Others can crawl through your deepest emotional corridors.

While I do like photography, I’ve always been a bit disappointed in the fact that it’s only two dimensional. This is why I don’t just mount my work, I build it.”

-Jeffrey Spring

Biography

Jeffrey Spring is a photographer informed by his professions of set design and creations for the likes of Universal Studios and Broadway Productions, and from the fine craft of wooden boat and tall ship engineering and building.  His work is not simply mounted as a photograph, it is built.  Spring uses materials such as medium density fiber board, wood panels of teak, cherry and walnut, metal, plastic, paint, oil, varnish, and clear-coat fixative to create presentations unique to each photograph.  The artist in fact brings the use of his materials further then simply presentation, and makes them an integral part of the tactile presence of his images.

​

Spring’s experience with photography has spanned the breath of technological changes in the field, from film spools and fixative to his current use of digital tools and modern printing and materials.  His photographs find a visual continuity, proportion and balance through his process of deconstructing a subject’s color and texture, and then re-building it as only a photographer who thinks three dimensionally could.
