A Statement From Dustin Parker
“I don’t consider myself a photographer. I’m a painter that happened to pick up a camera. All of the images were inspired by my girlfriend, and curator of the exhibition, Katie Sykes. She pushed me to drop the paintbrush and pick up the camera. The photos are intended to be a tribute to her and how she has changed my perception of the world around me. Her work has made me more aware of my own environment. We all neglect to see all of the beautiful things that surround us in our daily lives, we drive past them everyday but we fail to see them. Katie’s work forces you to stop and pay attention. She has definitely changed the way I see things. So…. my amateur attempt at being a photographer is a reaction to her work. I wanted to get inside her head and try to see the world with her perspective. This is the first time I’ve exhibited photographs so it will be interesting to see how people react to the work and if photography becomes something I pursue on a regular basis.”
