"Stories form the foundation of our human experience. I create incomplete stories, where the elements of the image touch but their relationship is ambiguous. This encourages the viewer to connect the dots and create their own narrative. The framework is visually and emotionally complex, inviting exploration into the beauty within their own shadows."
Craig Becker is a photo-based artist whose varied creative experiences - professional photographer, digital fine art printer and collagist - are each marked by the exploration of the visually evocative. From his lakeside studio in rural Maine, he combines multiple images drawn from his own work and archival photographs. His process starts with a general theme, but the work is constantly transformed during an intuitive and spontaneous process.
His award-winning work has been published in national magazines, numerous books and exhibited nationally and internationally. Portfolios of his work have been published in Musee' Magazine, F-Stop Magazine, BETA 19, Lenscratch and was as one of Feature Shoot's Emerging Photographers for 2017.
