M.D. Becker is a self taught photographer that lives and works in Kutztown, Pennsylvania. His interest in photography began to blossom in 2007 when he bought his first camera, since then it has infinitely grown.
His primary focus is on old building, barns and landscapes. Through his use of color he creates a juxtaposition of a place that is familiar but, only exists in the mind of the imaginer. A place we have seen in a dream but, never have visited.
His photography style is varied. He utilizes realistic, impressionist and abstract styles to create new worlds and dream like scenes.
He is a Juried member of the Reading-Berks Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen. He most recently has been featured in the “Home at Last” exhibit in the Craftmen’s Lancaster gallery and the Firefly Bookstore and Gallery.
Image creator since 1985, the camera has become like a extension of myself, a seventh sense. I learned the history of photography and the history of art in general in order to push my research even further in creating more within the field of photography.
As the 19th century pictorialist, I met the scuplteurs to learn how light plays with textures, I’m intoxicated by the light of sunrise and sunset to feel this special rate that the days light. I even warmed up to the light of the moon and stars, and discovered the polychrome lightning and meteor trail.
Using the transparency, I like to create symphonies sensation, felt, merging nature with urban planning.
Welcome in my universe.
Gillian Hunt is a Macro Photographic Artist living and working in Perthshire.
As a child amongst nature I found a land full of magic lit with incredible peace and joy. I found a place of belonging where there is no judgement, no pressure and no time limits and without realising a place where the rest of the world falls gently into place. This ‘communing’ with nature has continued into my adult life and I spent time every single day out amongst the flora and fauna that surrounds where I live . . . either just being amongst it, or studying it, or, when the time is right – photographing it.
I have now found that through my photographic art I can actually re-create the feeling of congruence and magic I first experienced as a child and now I want to lead people down to the bottom of their garden and introduce them to that magic teach them how to look at the light and the shade and perhaps allow them time to find their own congruence for a time whilst they are involved in my images.

Ever wondered what the Faeries get up to at the bottom of the garden? Well maybe this panel will shed a little ‘light’ and magic onto that very subject.
These images, photographed over three years at various locations and at various times throughout the day, depict Faeries in the ‘Ballet’ of their lives.
Option available to choose other images for the calendar.

For each person recognition of the world – the miscellaneous and considerably differs from others. For me each photo is the moment from life. They are like a breath. Who can tell, what one breath is more important than another? I photograph when I have time. Nobody gives to me of tasks and cannot tell:« Go and shoot ». I photograph, when I feel ready. If I cannot concentrate, I will not photograph, even such thought will not come to me mind. I cannot tell that I notice all around, but I try… And, sometimes my photos even precisely correspond to my expectations. Though happens that the good photo turns out casually. Actually I trust in a happy occurrence: there can be an interesting detail in a picture which I have not noticed, or even has noticed, but has not attached importance.
