Richard Saint Cyr

I have been taking photographs since 1983, when my dad gave me a Minolta X-700 SLR. Growing up in the Boston area, I moved to San Francisco and Sonoma county after graduating from Columbia University. Most of my photographic creativity has arisen while hiking around the spectacular beauty of Sonoma County and the San Francisco Bay. I now live in Beijing, China with my wife and child.

My photos have an emphasis on the surreal and abstract forms in nature that we are surrounded with, yet we barely notice. The details of the artwork are not nearly as important as the overall impression the viewer gets; any lingering over a piece, or a second glance, is considered a success by me.

Most of my images here are from film, usually Fuji's lovely Velvia slide film. Final prints have processed via a digital darkroom using Adobe products; with very little post-processing or manipulation. My cameras have ranged from a Minolta X-700 to Nikon N65, then the Nikon D70 and the beautiful Canon D5 Mark II. My one essential filter is a polarizer.
