Before enlightenment, I chopped wood and carried water. After enlightenment, I chopped wood and carried water. Zen Saying

My name is Roger Passman. I live in Northeast Illinois and, in the winter, Central Arizona. My interest in photography began at age 13 when the magic of image making became quite visible to me as I processed my first roll of film in a darkroom illuminated by a red bulb. Over the years since, I learned to see, not merely to look but to uncover the beauty in the mundane. I currently shoot with Canon digital cameras and process mostly using HDR techniques allowing me to re-present that which I saw.

My primary interest is in landscape photography with additional interests in urban landscapes and design elements of mechanical things. My landscape work ranges from the prototypical broad vista shot to the macro flower image. Urban landscape draws me to large architectural works as well as small things that catch my eye. No matter what I shoot, however, my style remains consistent, a bold vision inspires every photographic image I create

I thank you for your interest in my work. Please feel free to navigate these pages to view my images and the products which are offered.

As a prostate cancer survivor I am committed to donating 25% of the profits from the sale of my work to Project Zero to help support research in the fight against prostate cancer.

If you think you understand, things are just as they are – you do not understand, things are just as they are. Zen Saying

Is a Photograph a 'Capture?' I Think Not!!!

I don’t know about you but I am annoyed when people refer to a photographic image as a ‘good capture!’ I find the word capture to be at the very worst, insulting and at the very best, diminishing of the work of the photograph. The very word capture assumes a certain level of violence evoking images of chains, clubs and other weapons. It evokes the very idea of taking against one…

Why do I use the Neologism Re-Present along with Its Forms

I tend to use the neologism re-presenting or any of its other forms, pronounced exactly as one would pronounce ‘representing,’ rather than simply using the standardized spelling. The question is whether or not these two variations convey the same meaning as they are read (as spoken one would never know the difference, or as Jacques Derrida informs us, the differance. / Among all the arts, photogr…
