In the Step Up Gallery, February 10 – March 5, 2016
Dennis Scott’s fascination with photography started when ne was around 12 years old, with a Kodak Brownie camera, and grew from there. Photography combines both his artistic and mechanical talents, just as his profession, architecture, does. “To produce high-level photographs requires me to travel somewhere where I can leave the daily to-do list back home and concentrate on photography. For me, it can be as close as Harlow’s nightclub in Midtown Sacramento and as far away as South Africa. Presently, my commitment is mostly expressed in environmental portraiture, and journalistic photography related to nature and architecture."
The images in Angkor Views come from a body of work undertaken at Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Bayon, Beng Mealea, Preah Khan, and Ta Prohm, a World Heritage Site, in the Siem Reap Region of Cambodia. The work represents Scott’s feeling for the antiquity, craftsmanship, and architecture of the temples created by the Khmer people during the 10th through 12th centuries. “I wanted to capture the mood of the unique architectural spaces through the use of selective perspective and tonality in the prints.”
