This photograph was taken by the amazing and amazing david grooms photography. I love his work and he is one of the most talented photographers on the planet.
For some reason I have always loved photography. In high school I had a photography club and my favorite photographer was George Hines. He took great photos of the most interesting things and it seemed like there was no limit to what he could do. I don’t know what happened with him but I think he passed way too quickly.
David Grooms has been photographing and creating artwork for more than 10 years now. His work can be found in galleries all over the world. His most recent project, the ‘Gentle Giant’ series, includes large-scale, hand-painted portraits of famous men, often in very intimate, humorous poses. He was recently named a “Best New Photographer” by Newsweek.
I love the fact that he has a little bit of a ‘twinkle in his eye’ and that he is not afraid to put himself (and a camera) in the picture.
David Grooms is one of the most prolific photographers I know and his work has been featured in many publications and on countless websites. He also has a new book out now called The Gentle Giant: A Journey Through America’s Greatest Town. I love the fact that his work is not just a portrait of a famous person. Instead, these portraits are deeply personal and humorous.
It’s also a good thing when people who shoot portraits are not afraid to add that little bit of twinkle and that little bit of heart and humor to their pictures. I am a big fan of David Grooms, and I’m glad he and I got to put the finishing touches on the new book. It’s a wonderful read and just another good reason to go to a David Grooms show.
Photography is a very personal art and it is this personal nature that makes it very difficult for most people to like it. This is especially true when it comes to photography of people. It’s not something you can just snap a picture of and call it good. This is something that comes from a person and someone who takes their time to get to know their subject. There are so many factors at play when it comes to a person’s photography, making it impossible for most people to do.
The good news is that it’s still possible to learn how to like photography. Photography has a unique ability to communicate human emotions. It is this ability that makes it so difficult, and thus, interesting. It is interesting because it allows a photographer to communicate and make you remember things you may not have recognized.
It is difficult because it requires patience and perseverance to learn how to like a subject. While you can learn how to like a subject, it is impossible to truly like them. You may like the subject enough to want to make a photograph of them, but you will never truly like them or care about them.
The beauty of photography is that you can’t exactly like a subject. You can only make them into a photograph. So, why is David Grooms taking pictures of the same subject over and over again? Because he’s trying to make you remember something you may have forgotten.
