More Information
Michael Frye's photographs show a restless creativity in depicting the world of nature, with subject matter ranging from wildlife, to the landscapes of Yosemite Valley, to boldly colorful nighttime images of the American West.

"My 30-year-old dictionary defines photography as “The art or process of producing images of objects upon a photosensitive surface (as film in a camera) by the chemical action of light or other radiant energy.” I’m not sure about “producing images of objects.” I tell students that we don’t photograph objects, we photograph the light reflected off of objects. A great subject with poor light will make a poor photograph; an ordinary subject with great light can make a great photograph.

But I like the part about “radiant energy.” Although I’m sure Webster’s didn’t mean it this way, I think the radiant energy comes mostly from the photographer, or from the interaction between the photographer and his or her subject.

The photographs on this web site encompass two distinct bodies of work, each using very different kinds of light. One group of images was made during the day, using all the wonderful forms and textures of sunlight. The other group was made at night, combining electronic flash and flashlights (often covered with colored filters) with the dim light of the moon and stars. Although the subject matter is similar, the look and feel of the images is very different. I try to use my main tool—light—to create a mood, whether the mood is lyrical, playful, or mysterious.

Reviewer: Robert Rosenberg from SCOTTSDALE, AZ United States  
This photograph is beautiful. Buying on the basis of a thumbnail copy can be deceiving but the AA Gallery has never been a disappointment. This photo has a depth of color and contrast that makes it appeal to be almost three dimensional. Wow!

4 of 5 Lovely print July 30, 2016
Reviewer: Martha Schure from Wilton, CA United States  
It took nearly two months for this to arrive. The delivery driver apparently did not believe the packaging and one corner of matting around print is dented. However given the length of time involved I choose not to return my one of a kind art work. Hopefully the frame will hide the damaged corner. The print itself is fine.
