Thomas D'Emic

Connection to place for me is prerequisite to the creation of a meaningful image. This connectedness is based upon one’s life experiences. It becomes emotional rather than intellectual. Without this feeling of connectedness, it is unlikely that I would be able to convey my vision of what I am photographing. As a child I would spend my days on many of the beaches that are represented here. I would run up and down the beaches barefoot. In those days, the stones and sharp shells where ignored by my bare feet. Later in life, I would spend hours in the dark fishing for Striped Bass on these beaches. I trust that my connection to these places is conveyed through my work. My goal is not to create a strictly realistic interpretation. Rather, I am creating an image that is an interpretive vision. My photographs are in both color and black and white. Sometimes the color best enhances what I am attempting to convey. At other times, I find the color a distracting element in my composition
