I created AlignBetween Art | Design to give my fine art photography & design a "home". I have been a photographer for over 20 years, first with black & white film and yes, even beginning in a darkroom. Although I’m completely digital now, those years with film taught me what I consider to be the essence of photography: light, balance, symmetry and composition. The beauty of a shadow laying “just so”. The stunning lines and shapes of architecture, both historic and modern. And nature, with its innate symmetry and perfection - endless opportunities to capture something powerful or delicate - from fresh cut flowers to wildly shimmering leaves in a lush forest. In terms of design in architecture and decor, I am drawn to mid-century modern. I have a love for warm wood & clean lines. My work however, spans any specific design “genre”. Perhaps its safe to say its contemporary. It’s fluid and adaptable. That’s a beautiful consequence of photography as an art - it can really go just about anywhere. There is an interesting and exciting line between art and design. AlignBetween is an experiment with this very concept.
