Bruce Hucko

Fine Art Landscape Photographer

 

I specialize in abstract and intimate portraits of the landscape in Color and B&W digital prints that I make at home. I see photographs as a personally meaningful expression of my love of place.

For this Studio Tour I’m featuring a body of work that I call The Edge of Reality.” Since I photograph, everything I create begins as something real. In processing in Lightroom and Photoshop, I don’t manipulate the image to create something else, but enhance what I see and feel at the time of exposure. I tend to see abstractly. I’m drawn to movement (real and implied), line, form, pattern, contrast, texture, balance (all that Art 101 stuff), emotion and, of course, a photographer’s forever lover – light.

Though I’ve produced NPS slides shows and books of images favoring landscape icons I feel that my most true photographs come from looking closer at how my internal landscape is reflected in the external landscape. That’s where these featured images come from.

They were often made while on the trail of making a living producing illustrative photography for the national parks, books on Anasazi culture, western trails, etc. In the last decade or two, I’ve slowly ceased the illustrative work in favor of personal work – breaking news: EARNEST COLLECTORS OF PHOTOGRAPHY ARE MOST WELCOME! In addition to “The Edge of Reality,” I’ll have prints of Anasazi rock art and home (NOT ruins) sites, Colorado Plateau scenes, NW Coast inspiration, images from Millcreek entitled WaterSong and other images.

When not photographing, I can be found at HMK Elementary where I’m known to all Moab children as Art Coach! I’m the full-time art educator and consider myself quite lucky to be able to connect children to their creative personalities. Outside of photography I enjoy hiking, camping, road trips, rafting, red wine, sipping tequila and friendships. See you soon!

Covid Behavior

Unless otherwise stated, MASKS ARE REQUIRED. Wear your own, please. There will be no apologies if I turn you away for not wearing one.

Weather (wind!) permitting I’ll have bins of protected images and some framed ones set up in the carport and covered back porch. Peruse at will. Practice SOCIAL DISTANCING. I’ll have chairs setup in my front yard for those wishing to wait for the “crowd” to thin. There will also be images in my living room and print room. Entrance will be monitored and kept to a maximum of 4 people in the house at one time. It’s small!

If you want a more personal, intimate visit for yourself and your party we can arrange a specific time (no more than one hour). Email me the date (September 4th or 5th) and the time (on the HOUR, starting at 9am, ending at 5pm) and I’ll politely shoo everyone else out of the house. This personal viewing can include a brief demo of image processing if you desire, OR we can just share stories in the comfort of my home without me NOT being distracted by others!
