Photography describes a technology that records lasting images from real life by utilizing light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically or through an image sensor or chemically using a light-sensitive material. A camera is the tool used to capture and focus light reflected from objects into a replicate image on the light-sensitive surface inside the device (camera) during a timed period called "exposure". The result is an invisible image which is later chemically brought forth into a visible image or recorded on a digital card inserted in camera. Photography is often used to document a period, mood or moment. The immediacy of the camera's ability to capture images gives cause to the role of photography in art.
Contemporary art encompasses the art of today, produced by living artists. The art of today benefits from all the previous art movements in history as artists work in a wide array of mediums, formats, and styles, while transgressing art forms: music, architecture, video, performance art, living installations, technology.
More about Dennis Sabo
I honed my compositional and creative photographic skills when I worked as an underwater assignment photographer, and it progressed from there.
A trip to Africa in 2004 rekindled my passion for photographing terrestrial landscapes and microcosms of nature that appeared through in-camera techniques as abstracts.
Today I am known more for my fine art abstract and scenic photography. Light, color and shapes play pivotal roles in my photography as does the actual medium I have chosen most often to display my work—metal print
While nature is at the forefront in all my photography, I intentionally convey and display my natural world scenics and abstracts so that photography is looked at and worked as a medium different from the masses.
