KNOW YOUR ARTIST
Brian Sesack is an American photographer based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As a self-taught artist, he can’t remember the exact day but still can remember the feeling that came over him when he recognized the desire to photograph in black and white. Up until that time, he was photographing in color and mostly on vacations and at family events. Then, for reasons that remain unclear, but like other events in his life, he just had to "drop the reins" and experience the journey of discovery.
Brian has learned how to use photography as a vehicle for his creative self-expression and for the transformation from looking to seeing. As a result, he finds himself moved by concepts that he cannot explain, but needs to be interpreted by documenting the textures and tonal qualities. He also attempts to create images that bring the viewer into the subject. Over time, Brian has discovered that not only is it important to produce a beautiful image, but it is also through the process and the state of being creative that joyfulness comes to him as an artist.
