WELCOME TO THE FINE ART PRINT GALLERY
A Zen Morning, The Gulf Of Mexico
The only day in three years where the Corpus Christi Bay was so calm. It doesn’t happen often. The tranquility, peace, and silence of this image are timeless. Effortless. A Zen morning.
ART IS NOT WHAT YOU SEE BUT WHAT YOU MAKE OTHERS SEE- Degas
MY GALLERY OF FINE ART IMAGES
The John Borys Gallery of Fine Art Images’ sole focus is to provide its clients with superb, awe-inspiring images. Unlike some galleries that offer a variety of prints in an effort to appeal to a variety of customers tastes and sell on volume, The John Borys Gallery of Fine Art Images is about photographic excellence. I have been an artist his whole life. I am not a-want-a-be photographer, like the hordes or retirees that suddenly decide later in life that he or she wants to become a “photographer.” Sadly a lot of photographers have never studied art. The great photographers all studied composition painting and drawing. Henry Carter Bresson is a good example of how important composition is in an image. Everything that is in his photograph is supposed to be there. He made a conscious creative decision to weed out unnecessary clutter, or distracting elements in his work. Henry never cropped his images. He knew from the moment he took the shot that he was exactly in the spot with the right lens to tell the story that he visualized.
My work is about the nuances of light, color, and composition. The colors in the atmosphere change very quickly during sunrise and sunset literally in seconds. One of my favorite quotes is from Degas, an impressionist painter. “Art is not what you see but, what you make others see. My work takes the “taken for granted” things we see and makes them visually inspirational. Not just looking — but actually seeing what’s there. All of my landscapes are worked out in advance and a tremendous amount of planning goes into each shot. This discipline came from my years in advertising as a Creative Director in the advertising industry. Nothing is left to chance. Photoshoots for national brands are crafted in a way to evoke the most engaging and emotional response you can get. My fine art landscapes all have stories both behind and within the image. When you are looking for excellence in landscape photography I have many choices to consider.
