Maryland artist Michael Berry in Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography

Born and raised in the Midwest, Michael Berry’s passion for photography as art was inspired by the prairies he explored and a love of nature that would eventually embrace several continents.

His stark, virtually monochromatic images of moody clouds, vast prairies and elementary structures convey both loneliness and power. Through a juxtaposition of texture, patterns and geometry, Berry achieves what few photographers can — a grasp of the emotional range which raw nature bestows in a single glance.
There is skill and patience in Berry’s work, as he presents us with imagery that draws the eye to broad expanses and singular subjects. Fully exploiting both horizontal and vertical planes, Berry captures the movement and static nature of prairie life in its basic forms. Subjects are treated with an ethereal dignity and an understated relevance. Each work ignites the imagination, to move beyond image to narrative, providing a story of how fundamental elements define the world around us. These creations move beyond technical skill to become images of vision and insight.
