Moments and Souls features the work of Richard Burke and Dale Schmitt. The two met as teacher and student at the Ivy School of Professional Art. Both are eclectic photographers, but the show focuses on their passion for photographing people. They approach their work of capturing people in very different ways.
Richard’s inspiration has often come the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson, who defined the concept of the decisive photographic moment. Richard uses a technique of taking pictures without looking through the viewfinder to get more honest expressions.
Dale’s inspiration has come from the revealing portraits of Yousuf Karsh. Dale’s portraits capture a person’s soul. These photographs show both the carefully crafted and deliberate portrait style of Karsh and the split second timing of a life moment àla Bresson.
