There’s a very fine line between photography done for commercial and editorial purposes and that done for the purpose of art, but with Texas-based photographer Brent Humphreys, you see that line dissolve away and are left with a portfolio of work that both inspires and informs. Motivates and persuades. Entertains and delights. His published photo credits are impressive; spot his work in such publications as Maxim, Popular Science, People Magazine, Wired, Discover Magazine, The New York Times and Men’s Fitness, to name a few.
So what is it about Brent’s work that makes it able to move so freely between the worlds of editorial and fine art? His photos are like creative onions just waiting to be peeled. Simple compositions fool you at first, but as you look at each shot you see the story slowly rise from the details. You get a perfect snapshot of not things but of moments, emotions, questions, feelings and thoughts. And his lighting and use of color is pretty cool, too.
