Portfolio presentaions by Eva Pollack ..... "It is through the magic of photography that light becomes the subject matter with colours, forms, space, and time relationships that express my deepest feelings and beliefs."Wynn Bullock

I still vividly remember how I felt when I was first introduced to impressionist photography. It is a style that seeks to capture a feeling or experience rather than to achieve an accurate representation and, as a traditional photographer, at first I found that a really difficult concept to grasp. I was attending a workshop called The Art of Impressionist Photography where I saw images stripped of all unnecessary detail. The dreamy, painterly effect that was produced fascinated and excited me and I found the images extremely evocative.
