William Dey

United States  • 1970

Presentation

Artist Statement:

A Singular Vision: When creating a photograph, William Dey looks for the angles-both literally and figuratively. He constantly seeks a means to observe the world from the edges, to record unnoticed moments that comprise the narrative threads of our being, or of our having been. His hands may hold the camera, but Dey's interest is not in becoming part of the picture, nor in influencing the outcome. His sole purpose is to allow each thoughtful, artistically composed image to fully manifest itself to speak its own truth.

The world as seen through the eyes of William Dey, is a reflection of incisive visual observation. Dey has a gift for composition, an innate awareness of which visual elements must remain in order to complete the image-and the discipline to remove all that is extraneous. This is evident throughout his work, be it in the thunderous silence of the barren desert in winter, his stark juxtapositions of life in Palm Springs, lush reflections on the Glory Days of Detroit design,the chic structured tableaux of Dey's fashion photography, or his innovative and revealing portraits.
