Color Talk with Seth Resnick and 160,000 Miles of Color
by Brenda K. Hipsher – December 4th, 2013
Our latest installment in the Color Talk series features Coloratti Seth Resnick. Seth has made his mark in the world of contemporary photography with a prolific career spanning education, fine art, editorial, stock and commercial work, as well his entrepreneurial contributions in training thousands of photographers in digital workflow methods through the D-65 process. Chosen by Photo District News as one of the 30 most influential photographers of the decade, Seth is greatly in demand for his beautiful graphic images. Published in many of the world’s most prestigious magazines, his credits include over 2500 publications worldwide and his clients constitute a virtual “Who’s Who” list of Corporate America.
We caught up with Seth in New York earlier this year and asked him to talk to us about the role color plays in his photography. Seth Resnick captures an amazing palette of colors from Antarctica to the Atacama Desert to Iceland.
He and partner John Paul Caponigro offer expeditions and workshops through Digital Photo Destinations, an organization that combines exotic world travel with photographic education.”My visual philosophy is to produce images nobody else envisions,” says Seth. “Ideally, someone standing next to me won’t see what I see. I try to bring back those unseen images from my own mind’s eye. I am stimulated by color, design, light, texture, spontaneity and gesture.”
Seth literally travels the world looking to find some of the most unique images on the planet. He’s a stickler for color. It’s the soul of his work and he is dead serious about getting it right. Listen to what he has to say about color in his work and the importance of controlling his color workflow. Enjoy this latest in the Color Talk series featuring fine art photographer Seth Resnick.
December 2013 features the annual Art Basel in Miami, Florida. Art Basel stages the world’s premier Modern and contemporary art shows, held annually in Basel, Miami Beach, and Hong Kong. Founded by gallerists in 1970, Art Basel has been a driving force in supporting the role that galleries play in the nurturing of artists, and the development and promotion of visual arts. A new exhibit of recent work by Seth Resnick called “160,000 Miles of Color” will opened at Gallery 2014 in Hollywood, Florida on December 17, 2013 and continues through January 19, 2014.
One year. 160,000 miles. 13,333 miles per month. Almost 500 miles a day.
A lot of miles no matter how you count them. In a lifetime – 7 trips to Antarctica, 5 to Iceland, 2 to Greenland. Sojourns to Rwanda, Botswana, Tanzania, South Africa, Argentina, Chile, Bolivia. Ice, oceans, deserts, mountains, jungles. Humans, animals, everyday objects in incredibly unusual situations. Seth Resnick is a photographer in love with the color, drama and wildness that only miles of travel can witness. He is also blessed with the strength, determination and stamina to cover those miles. His images bear testimony to a passion for capturing moments that will never be repeated, to record beauty before it is forever lost, and to glorify the grand color palette that nature offers up so freely to those willing to see it.
Be sure to see this exhibit if you are in the Miami, Florida area between December 17, 2013 and January 19, 2014. This is one photography exhibit you will not want to miss.
