Fine Art, Black & White Photography by Troy Ziel

October 9, 2009

large_troyzielFine art photographer Troy Ziel’s body of work is, for the most part, about finding that special calm and simplicity among chaos. Before capturing an image, Ziel becomes “still”, and connects with his subject; achieving absolute presence.

Troy often refers to a famous quote by photographer, Minor White, when shooting: “Be still with yourself, until the object of your attention affirms your presence.”

Ziel is a pro photographer with an ever- growing body of work that appeals to collector-quality, fine art photography buyers, Interior Design professionals, corporate art buyers, and home owners with a taste for high-end, contemporary design.

Describing his production methodology, Troy says:

“The film is processed in the darkroom by hand. Images are drum-scanned for the highest resolution possible and then printed on Fujicolor Crystal Archive Pearl Paper. Pearl-like crystals give silver halide prints a specific luster, creating a distinctive pearl-like appearance which produces a beautiful luster look. Prints are 100% archival and are extremely resistant to aging with a lifespan well over 100+ years.

Ziel also offers this about his work: “In a sense, the capture is made when I feel permission is given back from nature itself which is a very powerful way of being. Hopefully the energy and connection within each image can be experienced by you, as well.”

    I am a collector of art and mostly recently became enthralled with black and white photograph, i.e., Michael Kenna
    and more recently Troy Ziel. I own his “Disney Dinner” and Metro Lights (Monte Carlo) and I fully enjoy looking
    at them even as I type this e-mail as they give me great pleasure. What more can I say!!!

    What a wonderful testimonial, not only for Troy and his work, but also for fine art photography as a whole.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to leave your comment.
