Bruce Byers has spent over 25 years perfecting the art of observing. With a
wealth of professional experience matched with a sensitive eye; Byers captures his observations photographically with evocative results. The images reflect a range of emotions, immersing the viewer in a world of private moments that most of us would otherwise miss. Unstaged and unstructured, these images reflect spontaneous moments of introspection, isolation, joy, serenity and playfulness. The genuine feelings communicated in Bruce’ work represent the true spirit of life in its everyday motion.
Bruce has traveled all over the world preserving his observations on film. He
explains, "I am intrigued by the emotional power of an individual’s private
reveries, typically unobserved by the outside world. As you walk down the street do you ever notice how people and objects are always in motion? They seem to come together but rarely collide, flowing seamlessly -- almost as if they were on stage in front of you. Being with them photographically helps capture the surprise of the moment connecting all three tenses – past, present, and future. I find myself stepping into the photo as it is happening, becoming part of it, and when I step, out the moment has passed.”
