“Luna-Sea” by Tyler Nixon
Browsing the net I found the photography of Tyler Nixon, a communications designer and photographer that is creating an outstanding body of work as shown in his [exquisitely designed] photoblog “wink”. His images are charming and creative but what it caught my attention is the consistency of the style of his images. You can enjoy his excellent work at “wink”, VFXY and his Flickr gallery.
My interest in photography is rooted in applications both inherent and environmental. Inherently I’ve been drawn to the visual realm, at an early age I developed a passion for painting which led to more structured forms of expression in graphic design, art direction and eventually photography. I believe my environment (specifically my relationship with my partner, a professional photographer) has enabled me to evolve my technical abilities which has resulted in a competence and confidence in my picture-making.
I started my photo-journal as a forum to share and learn from others, but mostly as a means of motivation in the pursuit of creating art and executing my ideas. I’m inspired by the authentic and absurd, by interesting juxtapositions of subjects, the stillness in a moment and by the vast beauty all around us. Furthermore I am interested in capturing these moments and finding meaning in the small details. The titles I use expand on my initial intentions, drawing an emotional thread to the viewer.- Tyler Nixon
