Michael C Hughes: Photographer, Arizona
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.
