Artist Bio - Steve Gould
Over the past fifty years, I have photographed awe-inspiring images on six of the seven continents (Australia, my seventh, is on the list!). I find that nature is far more creative and surprising than are humans, and the beauty and complexity of nature is unsurpassed.
My above-water and underwater photography focuses on landscape, “underwaterscape”, and abstract compositions. These photographs capture stirring vistas and ephemeral moments, presenting the viewer with a compelling set of images that explores the shapes, textures, and colors of our magnificent world. Some of these images are combined in photomontages that create the sense of a rich, complex, and yet primordial world.
When I photograph wildlife, I try to establish an intimacy with my subject. I often include enough of the surroundings to give viewers a sense of "context", but the intimacy with the animals is nonetheless apparent.
Sometimes, I include a touch of human intrusion to complete what nature begins.Contact Information
