Now and then an artist comes along with a little bit of a twist in his or her presentation style.
Meet Dennis Goodman, a photographer from Naples, Florida who was exhibiting at the Sarasota Art Festival this past weekend. There were a lot of different photographers sharing their work at the event, but the image above caught my eye and pulled me into the booth. Besides stunning images, Dennis's signature is big canvas prints.
I talked him into a quick grab shot, but in all honesty, you don't feel the true impact of his work until you're staring into the beauty of a BIG canvas!
Years ago my good buddy Terry Clark talked about how to find your niche in your community:
“The best thing to do to survive and thrive is find what everyone else isn’t doing and do that thing.”
Big prints aren't a new concept, but the way Dennis had them on display and his choice of prints to bring to the festival made his work stand out! The two big "gator" shots pulled me in because they were so different and striking.
