FOUR BY FIVE PHOTOGRAPHY

BILL WINCHESTER PHOTOGRAPHER

 

In this harried world we live in, we are often too rushed to see what nature puts right in front of us. After 25 years in advertising, I know this harried pace of life as well as anyone. That's why I like to explore a different way of looking at the world.

 

Black and white photographs change our perspective of the ordinary. Light and shadow create a different mood and change the way we observe the world. I love to explore the things that are so fleeting that they are easily missed. The way light falls on the commonplace and makes it special. The sky that lasts a fraction of a second. The way time and weather conspire to create an extraordinary texture. The miniscule detail that's so easily overlooked. These are things that make a difference between the mundane and the sublime and that's why I love to work in large format. The process itself forces me to slow down, to wait, to consider, 

to see things in a new way.

 

My hope is that as you look at my work, you feel a tranquility, a quiescent change of pace. That you come away with a slower heart rate. That you've been shown something that rewarded you for the time you spent with it.
