Bright, Crisp Photos by Lisa Kane
New York-based photographer Lisa Kane presents the urban and natural environment around her in sharp relief. Lisa’s bright, crisp photos are intently focused while still offering the viewer a number of different points of view and central subjects to contemplate.
I really enjoy looking through Lisa’s gallery of images from Syracuse, New York, the artist’s hometown. The images depict a variety of subjects, from old buildings, to water features, to close-up views of flowers. It’s interesting from a viewer’s perspective to see the particular moments that Lisa has chosen to immortalize from a place that she’s so familiar with. The photographs throughout her website remind me, as well, of the works of Kevin Callahan.
Lisa’s gallery of black and white photos features many beautiful moments. Whether it’s a simple image of a plant or tree on a neutral background, or an aerial shot that captures different elements of a city, these photos bring to the forefront details that might otherwise go unnoticed.
