Searching the Maine coast for the right studio still life prop for new photo series Ocean Drift

In the studio with still life series Inner Workings

Getting the printing just right

Howard Lewis is a New York based artist whose artwork explores the concepts of light, form and the perception of time.  Through his camera, Lewis strives to capture the dimensional qualities of form as rendered by light, illuminating the texture and age of each subject through the synthesis of photographic elements.

From Kinetic Solitude series Untitled #38

The Inner Workings series and much of my photography is linked to my interest and exploration of all things mechanical, the history of innovation and the passage of time.
