About BySian

 Influences, muses & inspirations that have shaped this journey

Once upon a time, far, far away, a middle school art teacher, played that song, showed me the painting, told me to close my eyes and tell a story in a single image.

"Starry, starry night
Paint your palette blue and grey"

Vincent by Don McLean 1971

The spark that ignited the photographic taper

"You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved,"

Ansel Adams

On the artist's relationship with her fans

"The artist evokes...
[It] actually doesn't matter what I feel.
What matters is how the art makes you feel."

Margaret Atwood 2004 - The Guardian


My work starts as an image caught through the lens of a camera, so in that respect you could call me a photographer.

But I would like to challenge that label. I consider myself to be a visual photographic artist, and the Nikon F3 film camera and Nikon D810 SLR are just tools to create the opening paragraph to the story I wish to tell.

A photograph can break the confines of reportage. It can be considered a piece of art in its own right.
