Artist Statement - Luke R. Greer

My mission is to give reverence and encourage preservation through the creation of powerful images. I feel serious matters, especially those of life and death are most respectfully represented in shades of grey, using compositions of light and structure. Black and white photography balances the dream world with the living, it is both an accurate depiction and an altered state.
