Padgett McFeely's Profile
Photography has been my way of discovering, exploring and relating to the environment since my first darkroom experience in the late 70's. Utilizing the raw purity of black and white photography is intrinsic to my art. As my work progresses through a variety of stages, it is as if I am in essence searching for that dream in the back of my mind!
I continue to work with traditional photograph processes. This keeps me feeling connected to the history of photography and the photographic masters of the past. I shoot with 35mm black and white film (often infra red) and develop and print in my 'wet' darkroom. I later enrich the photograph with my hand painting techniques. This allows me to amplify the mystique and intrigue of a particular scene, enhancing the emotional and spiritual content with the paint.
