J. Privette

Although I have lived as far west as Atlanta and also lived in the mountains south of Asheville for almost a decade, I grew up in eastern North Carolina and currently live on the coast. After living in a 19th century log cabin for several years, my family and I moved aboard our sailboat surrounded by water, wind, and weather. I took many of these photos from the deck of our boat, the dock at our marina, or from the seat of my kayak.
Strong shapes and bold elements attract me. I do not use software to change the photos or enhance the colors, and cropping is minimal.
I think of the images in terms of sketching or painting. Consequently, the images should appeal to you on an emotional level. They should draw you closer as if searching for a lost detail.
