Meryl Salzinger
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Downtown Brooklyn

Media:Photography;


ARTIST STATEMENT: My photographs are grounded abstractions of landscapes, which distill the mood and meaning of a scene. Through distortion techniques in initial exposure and printing, such as softened focus, the use of “toy” and plastic cameras, over-development, solarizing, and experimentation with the physical surface of a photo, I invite the viewer to focus on form, shape and texture over specific content. For me, the initial exposure may be a record of a decisive moment but it functions as raw material, much in the way that a selected piece of wood might for a carver. My work has been exhibited in a number of galleries and a museum in New York metropolitan area, and has been reviewed in the New York Times.
