About Steven Edson

" I use the camera to describe the nuanced visual details of my world. Simultaneously being both an active participant of my environment as well as an observer, I look for threads of a story - real or fictional which tie together the diverse and constantly changing visual relationships of people, place, and objects. I organize my vision by using the four edges within the viewfinder, capturing a specific slice of our shared reality when the precise moment the shutter is triggered. I am fascinated by the distillation and convergence and the ultimate transformation which an image undergoes from the moment of inspiration to the final framed print."
