ARTIST STATEMENT My images are a journey into the personal space of my subject. I believe that photography is not just a record of a physical presence but a documentation of the encounter between me and the energy of my subject. I want my viewers to see my photographs as an opportunity to consider the larger, unseen realities that contribute to the energy and uniqueness of my subjects. In formal terms, my work is an exploration of a packed frame typically filled with layers in the form of light, texture and color. I am interested in both the tension and solitude that exists between the perceived space of the frame.

RECENT PROJECT One year. 160,000 miles. 13,333 miles per month. Almost 500 miles a day. A lot of miles no matter how you count them. In a lifetime- 7 trips to Antarctica, 5 to Iceland, 2 to Greenland. Sojurns to Rwanda, Botswana, Tanzania, New Zealand, China, Japan, South Africa, Argentina, Chile, Bolivia. Ice, oceans, deserts, mountains, jungles. Humans, animals, everyday objects in incredibly unusual situations. Seth is a photographer in love with the color, drama and wildness that only miles of travel can witness. He is blessed with the strength, determination and stamina to cover those miles. His images bear testimony to a passion for capturing moments that will never be repeated, to record beauty before it is forever lost, and to glorify the grand color palette that nature offers up so freely to those willing to see it.
