“Writing about photography is a marvelous way to share information with others and to infuse my own architecture art photography with the insights I discover,” says Ellen Fisch. The recent article Fisch penned was well received by the editors of the prestigious magazine and garnered much attention.
“People are fascinated with photography today.” Fisch notes “More individuals have a chance to explore photography than ever before with the advent of new technology, but the master photographers who elevated photography to its present form should be studied.” Fisch looks to these historic images for inspiration and is currently sharing her insights about them through her writing. Photographer/artists such as Atget and Man Ray had command of painterly concepts in creating their images.
“I look towards many sources for information and inspiration,” says Photographer Ellen Fisch. Daily, Fisch surfs the web to read about new techniques in her field of photography and to see what her colleagues are up to. “Keeping up to date with new ideas and technology gives my photography a freshness and allows me to work more successfully.”
Many areas of art influence the architectural art photography of Ellen Fisch. “All of my life I have studied the past and current masters of architecture, painting, sculpture and photography,” notes Fisch. Self-education, explains the photographer, is a means to incorporate new ideas and new techniques into her images. “Often I will find an image from an unexpected source that offers inspiration,” says Fisch. “For example, old photographs dating from the 1800 and early 1900’s provide wonderful information on composition and values.”
These early 1900’s photographs are the basis for the article Ellen Fisch wrote for a prestigious art publication. The premise of the article is that photography relies on the same principles as painting, sculpture and the other visual arts. “Frequently photography is considered as a means to chronicle events and not as an art form. The very opposite is true,” states Fisch. “Photography as an art form is valid when the medium is compared with other visual aesthetics.”
Ellen Fisch has also raised the level of her own aesthetically focused photography by incorporating established fine art techniques into her photography. These subtle additions of pencil, charcoal, pastel and 24K gold leaf enhance Ellen Fisch’s images, creating a new art form from the blending of architectural photography with fine art drawing and gilding.
“Writing an article about photography helps me to further evolve my craft and to delve into the great photography of the past,” says Fisch. “Looking at the work of master photographers and analyzing their photographs gives me an opportunity to better separate components of their work.” Ellen Fisch then uses these as a reference for her own images. “I hope that my own investigations and writings about photography give insight to others.”
