Philip Sager fine art photographer who lives in San Francisco. His work is in private collections and has been shown in multiple galleries.
I grew up in New York City and as a child I was mesmerized by moving people, cars, reflections, storefront displays, and looking through windows into shops. This fluctuating visual complexity and the experience of serendipity continue to be primary inspirations for my photography. The process for me is mindful, being deeply in the moment and fully engaged with what is in front of me.
Project: Beyond the Surface
These photographs are created as I explore, searching to connect with a powerful visual experience. The images question perception and illustrate that reality is highly subjective and ambiguous. Although these single exposures are layered with visual information that hints at abstraction, they are not manipulated. There are solely created in camera. It is their intent to make the viewer consider what is real, what is constructed, and what is imagined. The images can be viewed in their entirety as an immersive experience as well as by their individual elements. The making of these photographs is influenced by my subliminal mind, my past, and my emotions; they explore the transient nature of experience by describing an instant in the flux of time.
