Featured Artist – Reception

Jim Barbour, Abstract Photography

I majored in Art & Economics. My profession was photography. For 10 years I was a Medical Photographer working for Children’s Hospital in Denver. I then shifted into freelance photography for corporations doing annual reports, events, environmental portraits, and marketing material in Minneapolis for 18 years and then back to Denver for another 20 years.

Now my focus is abstract photography. I often use my smartphone since it is always with me. Throughout my day, I am constantly looking at shapes, color, texture, shadows and the changing light. Taking the picture is just the beginning of my journey. After finding an interesting abstract image, I will add texture and color to make a composite image. Because of the convenience and power of the smartphone apps, I can now use them to blend and modify the images at a coffee shop. I might spend 20 minutes to many hours working on an image and end up with something I don’t like. Such is an artist’s journey!
