Ronald Regamey

I don't set out to produce pictures about one subject or another, but to produce "impressionist photography" in time or feelings that pull me into the moment. I am seldom without my camera. A clear understanding of myself and the world around me helps me to better see and to explore the places I would otherwise never explore. I use the camera as an opportunity to open the door to new and interesting things, and stories that need to be told. I use color and movement to capture the stage and visualize what I want to show in my images. The things that I photograph come from my desire and curiosity that pulls me into a world where the stage is set and the props are arranged. I am looking for a way to express light and darkness woven into a story. Each picture beckons questions to be answered. “Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? (Gauguin). My pictures evoke the still life of time. The slow decaying beauty of things long past or in our present day form. I use long shutter speeds and overlapping images to find the depth in each corner that is sometimes hidden in darkness. Lost or found places pull me into these settings that once or are full of life and breathe. The beauty of places, objects and things long forgotten or recently found demonstrate the longevity of things from our past that our found in the present. I often think of photography as two different art forms. When it comes to creating these dreamy sorts of images where things are out of focus it should be obvious to the viewer that the photographer intended it to be out of focus. If it’s only out of focus a little bit it looks like a mistake. Try to capture the feeling or mood of the scene rather than a literal representation. Please contact me if you would like to license some of my images. If you are interested in buying any of my images, please visit my prints. “If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn't need to lug around a camera.” – Lewis Hine Ronald Regamey joined Society6 on September 8, 2013
