Brian Sesack is an American photographer based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As a self-taught artist, he can’t remember the exact day but still can remember the feeling that came over him when he recognized the desire to photograph in black and white. Up until that time, he was photographing in color and mostly on vacations and at family events. Then, for reasons that remain unclear, but like other events in his life, he just had to "drop the reins" and experience the journey of discovery.
It is through black and photography that I have found a medium for my creative self-expression and the transformation from looking to seeing.
I find myself interpreting my environment through the documentation of tone, density, and form in an attempt to create a harmonious pattern that brings the viewer into the subject.
If the image has a voice and speaks to the viewer, then I’ve been successful. I have also discovered over time that as important as it is to produce a beautiful image, it is the process or the state of being creative that provides the joyfulness of being an artist.
