“VISUS” is H.S. Ray's interpretation of a sculptural masterpiece by Maestro Igor Mitoraj. This ethereal figure, blindfolded in the dark expanse of space, reflects the luminosity originating from an external source, that one intuits mirrors the “soul” of the subject, through the emotions that are generated by viewing the same. As part of Ray's “ART PHOTOGRAPHY – PHOTOGRAPHY OF ART" series, his quest is that of capturing an image that in a single glance, offers the essence of the scultural work subject, presenting thus, an ideal vision, a vision that is capable of exceeding the impact even of the original work of art. Darkness and light with strong contrasts distinguish this art photo that is, in effect, photography of art itself, contemporary art with strong ties to classical beauty and imagery. This photograph is capable of creating a unique atmosphere in any suitably complementary environment where a sense of introspection is desired. Ray has for the last 23 years documented with his photography, art and artistic works created by his studio and works by internationally renowned and emerging artists. His current series is the culmination of his efforts towards simplicity and clarity. Ray’s photos are all printed on the highest quality Baryta paper, guaranteeing the greatest detail and definition, tonal range with excellent archival properties, each photo comes with a signed and numbered authentication certificate. The ulterior quest of H.S. Ray is that of using the 2D world of photography to bring the appreciation of the 3D reality of excellent sculpture more easily into the homes of discerning collectors.

After leaving the U.S. to live in the home town of my immigrant mother from Italy, I departed for a world-travelling adventure that took me for extended periods of time through 40 countries during the span of 15 years. I always returned to Italy, where I still today stably work from. After conducting business in various sectors tied to foreign trade, I set my sites on exploring the field my maternal grandfather worked in: marble. In fact he operated a quarry in Carrara and I wanted to use this extraodinary material to create unique artworks and architectural elements. This I did through the creation of my own artistic studio and of a de-facto consortium comprised of some of the finest artistic artisans and artists in the city of Pietrasanta, where I reside, along the northern coast of Tuscany. My passion for photography grew constantly through my using this medium to document the artworks and architecture created by my studio and the consortium. Finding the ideal settings and views of these works became my mission and this sparked the idea I developed of Art Photography concentrated on photographing unique art. From that moment on, I photographed the works of internationally acclaimed artists as well as the up and coming. The important point to me was creating shots that presented that one ideal and “mythic” vision of a work, in a manner that not even the actual artwork itself could represent. 23 years have passed now, and my fervor working in all aspects of artistic creation has only grown. My work still involves the creation of sculptural art, architecture, design in these and other areas and collecting artwork myself as well. Being immersed in these realities has permitted me to see my objectives as a photographer better. My current focus is on a series of works that have the subject of sculptures by internationally renowned master artist Igor Mitoraj. The heirs to Mitoraj have in their collection these works, which I consider an honor as they put the utmost attention on Mitoraj’s work, legacy and image. I am also dedicated to a series of works that depict clay-to-plaster sculptural models used by sculptors. This series is an intimate look at these often sensual and always beautiful works of art, some contemporary and others centuries old, that act as muses for artists, providing the inspiration and the measurement references to them as guidance. I call this series of works “The Secret Lives of Models”.
