Glen M. Sanders has been photographing for nine years and loves it every day. He is almost entirely self-taught. Glen was born and raised east of Cleveland, Ohio. Since that time California and Sicily have been home. He currently lives in the Finger Lakes Region of New York.
Landscapes and abstract views of nature have long proved Glen’s most constant inspiration. More recently travel, street and people photography have peaked his interest. He has been blessed to travel far and has found some of his most cherished images close to home. He seeks to connect with the spirit of a place or the essence of an individual and tell their story. His artwork strives to translate truth and share it with others. Glen hopes his unique perspectives will encourage others to see the everyday differently, perhaps more deeply. Glen's artwork has been shown in California, Mexico, Sicily and New York in both solo and group exhibitions.
My craft is practiced to produce the emotional impact capable of fostering a palpable connection. Spirit of place, the essence of the individual; these are elements that matter and endure. Coming into contact with these truths is a blessing and my artwork seeks to translate and share these perspectives. I hope to encourage others to experience the everyday more deeply.
The neccessity and beauty of connection is an essential theme, deeply embedded at times, in my art. I have found photography a way to see the world in a peaceful and transcendent fashion. My camera acts as “a finger that points to the moon” to use a Buddhist adage.
