EBSQ Spotlight on Photography: Colour: Richard Holland

This month’s featured gallery is Photography: Colour. Photography lets us briefly stop time and capture tangible moments. Whether spontaneous or crafted, what our eyes see is frozen forever. When the photograph is in colour, we will always have the blue of the sky, the flush of a cheek, and every colour the world presents us. During the month of June, we are going to take a few moments to catch up with some of the EBSQ photographers that enjoy capturing the world in colour.

Age - Richard Holland

I became interested in photography when I was about 16 years old…got my first SLR as a high school graduation present from my parents. Much to their dismay I spent the better part of my college years in the photo lab.   I spent a couple of years learning the silver process (B&W) and developing a personal gum bichromate process (water colors) before moving on to color (long before the digital age).

I call myself a social landscape photographer, which is like photojournalism without the paycheck.  I like to capture the truth in a person’s eyes, something they prefer you wouldn’t see; a soft spot.  It’s there for a moment unguarded then jumps back behind the wall.   I also enjoy performance photography: music, dance, sports. Nature is also a big draw.  Stopping time in the flight of a bird or a bee.  Enjoying the bloom of a flower.  Helping others be moved by things they otherwise might not.

I feel color photography deals with reality.  Black and white by its very nature manipulates the moment.  I love both. – Richard Holland
