May 2014 Artist: Don Sichler

Come discover the unique artistic vision of photographer Don Sichler on our walls for the month of May

Don Sichler is an artist who uses a camera and a computer as tools. As he puts it, he doesn’t create art, rather he discovers it.

My camera records what I find and the computer is used to develop and expose it. Sometimes the completed picture looks very different from what the camera recorded. I call my photos alternate reality. It is reality because it is not a painting. It is real. It is actually what the camera captured in its memory. It is alternate reality because I use the basic tools in Photoshop to emphasize certain aspects of my photos like color and design. My goal as a photographer is to get my pictures to look like what I saw in my mind’s eye when I snapped the shutter and help the viewer see and experience what I did.
