Photography and Words by John Partipilo
For 35 years, as a photojournalist and storyteller, I’ve turned my lens on people ranging from Hispanic gangs and homeless children to the war in Iraq and images of Cuba.
With art I always take chances. I aim to tell stories in new ways, always challenging myself and my creativity.
What I found was a way to tell stories with line, shape, form, color, and space to create harmony, movement, and balance in my photographs. I also think about photography as if I paint with light. When I see light that resonates with my creative process I get emotional, and those feelings draw me towards making the photograph.
My approach to Abstract Nashville was no different. I trust my eye and react to what appears in front of me. I experiment. I break the rules and look for a new way to see the reality around me.
