Viewpoint Photographic Art Center proudly presents the work of Jon Sousa, a California photographer who shares for the first time one of four portfolios based on his travels in the States and abroad. With thirty-five years of photography experience as a photo educator at the high school and community college level, as well as having owned and operated Jon Sousa Photography doing portrait work, Sousa now turns his attention to his personal vision. In this body of work, The Human Touch, Sousa’s images incorporate the relationship between his favorite model and evocative architectural settings.
From the forests of Northern California to the canals of Venice, Italy to the Pacific Coast of Mexico (and points in between), Sousa imparts his unique vision that pairs the ideal setting, which on its own is interesting, but with the addition of his model, brings on an air of questioning. It is this balance between person and place that creates a sense of the inexplicable. Void of expression and attire, the model contributes to the atmosphere of timelessness, allowing the viewer to impart his own emotion and thought onto the image, while also providing the human touch.
