Artist Statement:Featured Artist: Bob Kim

Featured Artist: Bob Kim

Bob Kim captures the essence of everpresent natural beauty and our primordial connection to it. He creates images that transcend the limits of camera and film, a vision of nature’s panoramic grandeur, timeless and unspoiled. His artistry is a unique combination of the camera’s eye and the mind’s envision. It is his original method of mixing classic painting techniques and traditional fine art photography and latest digital tools that gives physical presence as well as emotionally dramatic lighting, greater range of color fidelity and extraordinary details.

Bob Kim was born in Seoul, Korea in 1961, and moved to the United States with his family in 1975. He studied fine arts and photography at the Maryland Institute of College of Art in Maryland, graduating with a Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts in 1983.

His artistry is a unique
combination of the camera's
eye and the mind's
vision. It is his original
method of mixing classic
painting techniques
and traditional fine art
photography that gives
physical presence as
well as emotionally dramatic
lighting and greater range of
color fidelity.

Kim's rendition of Hedrick
pond in Wyoming is the product
of over two
hundred photographs, edited
down to thirty images taken in
a two-week
period from five different
viewpoints of the park. It
took him over a month
to create the final composite
image, a result of extensive
color correction,
dodging, burning, and masking.

He has some spectacular images, I really love his use of light.  If I'm not mistaken, I've seen an article or two about him in some magazines.  He is very good.
