About Wendell Shinn

Though originally a painter, I have long since turned my focus to photography. I was originally focusing on landscapes like these in National Geographic to San Francisco cityscapes featured in San Francisco - A Cabby's View to the more abstract work in Haight Street Reflections.  I am particularly attracted to the spontaneous energy of urban and the multiple layering of window reflections where images are ambiguous, rapidly changing, and reality is skewed.  My recent forays into photomontage or 'compositing' are the natural extension of the constantly shifting window reflections featured promeniently in my most recent shows.  My composites aim to capture the energy of diverse environments in a landscape where Salvador Dali meets Walt Disney.
