It's a Big Fall for Bruce Percy

November 13, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

 

People who know me sometimes ask, "Don't you ever take a vacation or go any place warm?".  They know my affinity for kayaking off the coast of BC or traveling, birding, and photographing in the Arctic.  Maybe that's one of the reasons I'm really fond of the work of photographer Bruce Percy.

Born in Scotland, he's made an impressive body of work traveling to the colder areas of the globe and capturing their beauty and mystery in very creative ways.  He still works in medium format and shoots predominately if not exclusively in film, using a hand held light meter to balance his exposures. And these exposures are brooding, striking, and surprising vistas of often subdued colors but wide tonal ranges.

It's been a "big fall" for him in 2012.  In the sense that two Northwest photo publications made his work big pieces of recent editions.

The first came in issue 102 of the local Portland landmark and icon of black & white photography LensWork magazine.  Bruce's images of Iceland were one of the featured portfolios in both the print and digital versions.  It's interesting that his work is the only color work included.

The second was being highlighted in the premiere issue of Photograph, a new digital publication from the Craft & Vision guys in Vancouver, BC - they describe it as 

"A Digital Quarterly Magazine for Creative Photographers"

It's quite a lengthy article and ends with a fine interview adding insight and depth to the images.
Check it out at: http://craftandvision.com/books/photograph-issue-one/
It's only $8 for the pdf.

Bruce's own website also just announced the publication of his compendium/compilation of images from his three trips to Iceland.
