This site is primarily a showcase of my fine art photography. The statement and biography should provide further insight into what motivates and guides my art.
Should you be interested in purchasing a print, please visit my new website and gallery which has a selection posted: https://www.burtonpritzkerprints.com/. It makes it easy to order and have them delivered to you framed and ready to hang. Five of my 16 series have been uploaded to this new website. So, should you be interested in an image and it does not appear there please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 512-912-9354. Prices are similar on both websites and depend on size and where it falls in the edition. Generally the range is $1,450 to $5,400.
The resume is edited and distilled. Should you be interested in the complete and current resume there is a link here. I have just updated this site by adding photos of a permanent installation of my prints at SEDL/Phase 2 in Austin, Texas. The image on the left, Ichabod Crane's Last Ride, is from the series, Mosaic. Photography is a medium of light just as dance is a medium of movement. The camera's ability to capture what is usually agreed upon as "reality" is the least of its possibilities. It has a great ability to capture that which is unseen, beneath the surface and hidden from view, similar to an iceberg, which is 90% underwater and mostly invisible, but is no less real. This is abstraction. Most of my work from its beginning was abstract in some manner. All of my black and white photography is produced optically, on film, printed in a traditional darkroom and is concerned with some degree of abstraction. The color work is shot on color transparency film and then high resolution scans are made. The images are then fine tuned in Photoshop and printed as carbon pigment prints on 100% rag watercolor paper, such as Hahnemuhle Photorag. None of the original imagery was created using digital photography. Some color images were shot on black and white film, printed in my darkroom and then scanned. These scans were then altered in Phtoshop and printed on 100% rag watercolor paper, such as Hahnemuhle Photorag. The image on the Homepage and in the Mosaic series are like that.
