Short Biography and Artist Statement

DeWolf_20120104_6192Brian DeWolf’s trademark photographs are serene, moody, and reflective in a black and white style that hints nostalgia. He also produces color images and some “painterly” images.

Brian is a member of Professional Photographers of America. His work has received merit awards in every annual international competition that he has entered. “Foggy Morning Ride” was accepted into the prestigious Loan Collection in 2002. He was a Bronze Lever Photographer of the Year in 2008.

In 2006, about 80 of his images were chosen for “A Toast to the 14 Congressional District” event and fundraiser for Speaker of the House, United States Congressman Dennis Hastert. The featured guest speaker was the late Whitehouse Press Secretary Tony Snow.

In 2007, Brian was invited to photograph Croissy-sur-Seine, France and nearby villages. This area is the birthplace of French Impressionist Art (Money, Renoir, Pissarro, Sisley, et. al.) It resulted in a 2009 solo exhibit in France that was attended by a member of the French Parliament, a French Senator, three local mayors, and the family of a former French Ambassador.

His photography hangs in many states in this country and in France, China, England, Germany, India, and South Africa.

"A camera creates an historical document. Granted, not all history is visually interesting. My motivation is to artistically document aspects of culture that often go unnoticed in a busy world. I hope viewers feel they are looking at a moment that was spared from its destiny as an unrecorded memory, and to do it in a way that is pleasing to look at. I also want the scene to produce an emotional response in others like it did for me.”
