Artist Statement

Bob Wood

I try to use the latest digital camera technology along with techniques used with film cameras. This allows me more freedom to create in-camera while shooting. The digital darkroom offers an infinite array of possibilities when I want to expand beyond the camera. I am exploring photography as art. I am interested in photography which depicts reality as much as I am interested in photography conveying my artistic view of beauty, history, environment, people, and feeling. Aesthetic values that have brought me comfort throughout my life are the most important ingredient of my art. My hope is you will find some measurement of comfort in my art as well

Bob Wood lives in Fort Dodge, Iowa with his wife Karen and "Lucky" the wonder dog.
