ARTIST STATEMENT

DONALD BOMELI – PHOTOGRAPHER 


“From now until the end of time no one else will ever see the world with my eyes,
 and I mean to make the most of my chance.”

                                                     David McKay – Travels in Philadelphia





I have been photographing travel memories since I acquired my first camera at age eight.  Repeat visits to specific destinations have helped me realize that regardless of the place or event, a scene never will look exactly the same again.  Therefore my goal with every exposure is to capture and reproduce a scene as precisely as possible.  For every exposure, from a delicate close-up of flowers, to textures of buildings and skylines, to sweeping landscape vistas, I strive to maintain the utmost in clarity and crisp detail during the imaging process.  My earlier work focused on the patterns and textures of black and white photography but recently I have been expanding into the world of color photography, especially with wildlife and flower images. 

To maintain my standards of quality control, I personally carry out every step of the print-making process from exposure and processing, to cropping, editing and printing, and finally to mounting and matting the print.  All prints are made with the finest archival materials available and mounted on acid-free board.



Because traveling is a primary hobby, my subject material may be found around the corner, or around the world.  Regardless of the location however, it is true, no one else will ever see the world with my eyes.  I hope you enjoy what I saw.
