This is a unique and whimsical collection of images of various sized gazing balls in different locations. It started out when I became fascinated by the fact that the image shows not just the view in front of the observer but the ball’s reflection shows the view behind as well, including of course, the photographer. From my artistic point of view, there’s a zen-like conflict in showing a perfect sphere with a mirror reflection in an incongruous environment.
The “Travels with a Gazing Ball” series continues to attract a lot of attention at Art Shows and other events and some prints have won awards. People of all ages are fascinated by the concept and buy the prints to display at home not only because they’re strong images but also serve as conversation starters. “These are going to make great talking points on my wall!” is a frequent comment and it’s not unusual for customers to buy two or more to form an eye-catching group.
People keep asking me where they can buy the prints to frame themselves or they want to tell their friends about the series so please have a look at the gallery.
