Piece description from the artist
Manhattanhenge — sometimes referred to as the Manhattan Solstice — is an event during which the setting sun is aligned with the east–west streets of the main street grid of Manhattan, New York City. This occurs twice a year, on dates evenly spaced around the summer solstice. The first Manhattanhenge occurs around May 28, while the second occurs around July 12.
Chad Weisser takes photographs to define his experiences, to encapsulate moments and share the earth's most extraordinary places. Naturally, Two of his great passions in life are travel and photography; Chad believes that traveling and gaining exposure to other cultures and places can broadens one's view of the world and photography provides him with a way to explore and share each experience..
Chad considers the art of photography to be a subtractive process where he must distill reality into a personal vision. With this is mind, he often uses the tools of modern photography to try to capture the emotions he experienced the moment he tripped the camera's shutter. Chad also believes that the most important goal of a photograph-as in all of art-is to evoke an emotional response. While many of his experiences in nature do this for him, selecting the places and moments to make a photograph that conveys those emotions is far more difficult. To this end, Chad's processes involve meticulous attention to detail in his field technique, along with work in a digital darkroom to fine-tune and optimize contrasts, colors, tonalities, and luminosity.
Chad currently lives and works in Manhattan, New York.
