Beyond Lenses.

Despite having spent a majority of my childhood working with traditional graphite and acrylic mediums, my interest in photography sparked during my junior year of high school; after having taken a film photography class at a local college, exploring the world with a camera evolved into both an obsession and a lifeline.

Today my work primarily focuses on the moments and emotions that we are conscious of, but often fail to put into words. Much of this subject matter is psychologically or theologically based, drawing from the complexities of the human mind and emotions, as well as the enigmatic nature of life, death, and the post-mortem. While such topics can often be disturbing in popular culture, I hope these explorations of truth and theories encourages a similar investigation your own lives. Creating communication is my goal.

This shop is where I list my silver gelatin prints for sale, as well as mixed media, alternative process, and digital works. In an effort to become self-supporting, all funds will be directed towards maintaining my cameras and purchasing film/development chemicals.

Hello there!
I am a fine art photography undergraduate student at San Francisco's Academy of Art University. My work primarily focuses on the moments and emotions that we are conscious of, but often fail to put into words. This psychological influence is most evident in my digital work, though it is progressing to my film captures as well.

At the moment, this shop hosts solely black and white 35mm captures, emphasizing form, texture, and the nature of light. All images have been manually shot and developed by me to ensure the greatest creative & quality control possible. Please note that while these photographs are originally shot with 35mm film, I have used a professional grade film negative scanner to digitize and reprint them at a larger size.

All sales will go towards funding my education; either by paying lab fees, purchasing film, or contributing to my tuition.

Still have questions? Please email me at lwestermanphoto [!at] gmail.com and I will do my best to address your concerns.

Thank you and have a lovely day!
