Gary J. Maxwell Photographs
Aliquippa, PA

I graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1973 where I studied black and white photography. Some of the photographers that amazed me then and now are Edward and Brett Weston, Imogen Cunningham, Ralph Gibson, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Aaron Siskind.

I really didn't like the idea of digital photography for a long time. Working in a darkroom was very gratifying. In the mid 90's I was given a Pentax digital 35mm camera from a friend. Many the photographs in this gallery have been taken with this camera but most have been taken on various model iPhones. I shoot a lot of flowers. A few of them have turned out very abstract but I look at most of my images as abstractions. Colors and shapes.

I have never used Photoshop or Aperture, but do use a few free or inexpensive apps like Pixler, Camera Bag and Glaze, most of the work is done using the Apple Photos application. I seem to go back and forth between computer and iPhone apps a lot on each photograph.

So I've been using a camera for about 50 years. I'll keep working at it, changing ideas and looking for new ways of doing my art. I hope you enjoy viewing my work.

Thank you and be blessed.
