What is real? What is an illusion? Can the illusion speak more powerfully than the “real”? The digital revolution in the arts has provided wonderful tools to create surrealistic imagery. I no longer just take images but rather, make images. I may shoot objects with a final image in mind, or just collect them for my “library” that I draw from when an idea comes to me. Some images speak their message better in Black and White where line and form become dominant… where the emotional impact of color is absent and urges the viewer to provide their own. It was a cool March day on St George's Island off the Gulf coast of Florida. It was overcast, but calm... and, as always, the seagulls were hungry. Standing on the balcony, my wife threw bread scraps into the air as the seagulls hovered near and grabbed the offerings with much enthusiasm. I later added water and reflections to their portrait. It is produced in a limited edition of 10 in it's largest print size. It is printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag 308 with Archival Pigments. The image size is 40 inches x 40 inches with a 2" border for a final work that measures 44 inches x 44 inches. Signed and numbered on the front, it also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and is shipped in a crush-resistant tube. You can also acquire the image in various open edition sized prints with a choice of framing or as a gallery-wrapped canvas. www.marcwardphotography.com

The 90’s and 00’s saw he and his wife Kathy, operate their own gallery that represented the work of 150+ artists and craftspeople.
