ARTIST STATEMENT by Monte Nagler
To look through a camera and know that a mere fraction of a second of exposure can translate a fleeting image into a lifetime of enjoyment for you and me is a true joy. Through my photography, I want to say, “This is what I saw and felt and I want to share that.”
Photographers have the ability to make visible what others can only sense. This concept excites me. I want to stir people’s emotions with my photographs, get them to see the world in a fine light, and help them to appreciate life a little more. I’ve been through a lot of exciting times and adventures to obtain these photographs, and in doing so I’ve developed a keen awareness of the earth and its elements.
If I can help to instill in others some of the same feelings through my photographs, then a deep sense of accomplishment and satisfaction is mine. How fortunate I am to have a life work that is so satisfying and enjoyable. My intent is to share this with you.
