Wynn Bullock - My Heroes (cont.)

"Wynn Bullock was multi-talented, beginning his artistic endeavors as a concert tenor, with success on Broadway and studies in Paris. While there, he found further inspiration in the art of the recent French masters, most notably Cezanne, and also in the groundbreaking explorations of Moholy-Nagy and Man Ray.

Back in the United States Bullock focused his artistic energies on photography, throwing himself into experiment and innovation with a rigor that resulted in two international patents.

Besides his extensive experimentation, he explored the beauty and strength of "straight" photography using an 8 & 10 camera, creating the intense and luminous images filled with mystery and metaphor for which he is best known today." To see more images click here or here.
