WAS Artist of the Week…

Michael C Hughes: Photographer, Arizona

Parked in Habana Centro

Artist Statement: I am a native of the Sonoran desert with a great love for the dramatic landscape of Arizona.  Feeling compelled to expound upon that love, I harkened to photography, inspired by the work of Ansel Adams and Elliot Porter.  It was natural for me to take to a camera as my father and grandfather were photographers, passing on to me some instinctual passion for capturing images on film.

Whether sitting in a café or on a river raft, I see what’s around me as photographic images.  How I view the world is revealed by my photographs.  They are recordings of my questions and understandings, and an expression of my sheer delight of creating with light.
