Duane Romanell Photography
Duane Romanell is a fine art photographer/creative director with professional visual experience in fields as diverse as publishing, communications, entertainment, and education technology.
For him, photography has been no less than a catharsis, allowing the emotional desolation of a struggled past to emerge and become transformed into details of form and light. His stark, evocative images communicate from a somewhat detached perspective, inviting the viewer to complete a story, instead of imposing upon them a specific interpretation. Possessing a cinematic quality, the work captures moments of delight and decay between urban and rural landscapes as it examines the pervasive nature of human expression.
Honors number among recognition by the American Society of Media Photographers (NJ chapter), work featured in Times Square for GE Healthcare's "Picture a Healthy World" initiative, publication in various independent fine art photography collections, as well as inclusion in exhibitions across the United States.
The artist currently resides in Northern, New Jersey with his wife, the abstract painter Christine Soccio, and family.
