About Mitchell Brozinsky
My quest is to discover that magical alignment where something new and beautiful is formed in the moment of capture within the negative. Beauty is a personal notion which takes us deep within ourselves, opens the heart and soothes the mind. I explore the beauty of light, from the natural light of day to the artificial lights emanating at night, to the shifts of light filtered through glass and rain on a windshield. My work is about finding that balance between the elements. Each image tells a story including the expanded vocabulary of digital capture & editing processes. I do this without compositing or layering the image, simply pushing the light and color to its limit that is contained in each “negative”.
My rain project evolved directly from being on the on the road as a location scout, always photographing over a wide terrain. I seek places and pictorial elements that will become a setting for whatever commercial or photo shoot I’m on. While sitting in my car managing an Affack TV Commercial shoot, a cup of coffee in hand and a walkie-talkie on the dashboard, a rainstorm sprung up. The water washing over the windshield created a prism through which to view the world. I started shooting the street, the passing cars and people passing by. I loved how the textures of the rain and reflections on the windshield transformed reality. I’ve been working on this project ever since. While many photographers use rainy days for printing, I grab my camera and hit the road.
