Jeffrey R. Brosbe
Jeffrey R. Brosbe is drawn to light and form. He is a collector. His images, which are fine art photographic prints offered in extremely limited editions, represent his collection of things, “… that touch me, that stimulate me, that move me emotionally, intellectually, or, best of all, in both ways.” His images are best described, in general, as “Introspective” and often “Impressionistic”. He considers the creation of an image the same as the creation of a Haiku: “It should be whole and meaningful in itself while providing greater insight when pondered further.”
He has been engaged in photography for almost his entire life. His earliest saved negative was created in 1952, and he expects it to be several years before he creates his last. However, it was not until 1994 that he began showing his work in public.
His first solo exhibition was in 1995 and his last honor was inclusion in the 51st International Exhibition at the San Diego Art Institute – Museum of the Living Artist in 2011.
Visually, my work is built around shape, light, and shadow. The essence of my images however are moments in time which, in their contemplation, communicate my personal response to the world which is sometimes a wry, ironic smile; at others awestruck;, and sometimes in a realm between these poles,
