My goals are to deepen my ability to see the world around me and to increase the visibility of my work.

For the last few years, I have been photographing primarily in Oregon’s Rogue Valley where I live. Since I know it well, I challenge myself to continually uncover new visual insights and to use new processes to express what I see.

My main project right now is The Winston Eye. This is a weekly newsletter featuring recent images sent out to over 1000 people. This simple exercise spurs me to create new images on a consistent basis.

Having
 an audience that is interested in my work helps me to keep growing and to take new risks. During the period that I’ve been posting on The Winston Eye, I’ve received two artist residencies and a solo exhibit at The Governors Office in Salem, Oregon.

 

Hotel Josephine

I’m inspired by both the breathtaking quietude of the natural landscape and simple surprises in the ordinary. To be 
in the midst of an awesome vista when light and atmosphere come together to create nothing short of magic 
is a sacred experience.

I also love to explore the world of man and manmade
 objects. While there’s no question how awesome a landscape can be, there’s a playfulness that I love 
to explore in the manmade world.

This usually takes the form of juxtaposition and/or unexpected relationship. Finding surprises in the ordinary is my way of expressing the irony, humor and design (usually unconscious), which is part of our daily experience, yet goes largely 
unnoticed.

 

Comments

  1. fascinating work although some of the photographs look so much like paintings – very cool

    • Val, Thank you for commenting. I often hear that my work is painterly and lately I think it’s been going in that direction even more. I like to explore the boundaries of what a photograph is.

  2. Wow!

  3. David Silva says:

    Stunning images. I could spend alot of time attempting to comment on them all, but that really would be a waste of time. I do want to single out Hotel Josephine as an amazing composition. And that of course is very much an understatement.

  4. Thank you for your comments, David. Hotel Josephine clearly has an appealing mural on its side. I tend to struggle with whether to photograph other’s art since most images of other’s art are totally dependent on the artistry of the artist. However, at times I’m able to bring enough of my own vision to another’s art and hopefully transform it to some degree. I’m really glad you like it.

  5. Sydney Chandler says:

    These are awesome David. You never cease to amaze.

  6. I can never get enough of David Winston’s photography. I also love your blog, David. You’re beyond amazing.

  7. Hi David,
    I love the painterly look of your photos. It’s something I’m trying to achieve myself.
    Good luck,
    Henrietta

  8. Wonderful work. Congratulations!

  9. It’s way past time….. two artist residencies and a solo exhibit at the Governor’s Office in Salem…. I couldn’t be prouder or happier for you. It’s a treat and honor to be on the edges of your life David.
    I’m going to start saving my pennies for the coffee-table-book of your work that surely must come!
    Highest regards, ~lori g
