Brides Magazine along with the Wedding Photojournalist Association teams for an annual contest, open to members of the WPJA only. I am really proud to announce that Dennis placed 2 images… one in 6th for the Bride and Groom category and one in 7th for the Ceremony category.
When Dennis found out about how he placed, he said… “I can do better next time.” For Dennis, as an artist, his work is never good enough, never done… he always has more ideas, more inspiration…. he is always striving to do better.
Now as a person with more of a scientific mind, I look at the contest, look at how many photographers around the world have entered and do the math… 6th and 7th place is amazing! What an honor…
I have known a lot of artists in my life from painters, to singers, to jewelry designers, and they all have that same quality. It is like they are constantly searching and striving to express or capture something meaningful – but can never fully convey that feeling as they want it to. They have an inherent restlessness. It is that constant turmoil that gives the world art.
An artist never really finishes his work; he merely abandons it. ~Paul Valéry
Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression. ~Isaac Bashevis Singer
Art is an adventure that never seems to end. ~Jason, Los Cerros Middle School, 1999
What garlic is to salad, insanity is to art. ~Augustus Saint-Gaudens
