Garald Horst is from a farm in Northeast Nebraska. His first photography venture was black and white with a Brownie 620 borrowed from his mother. He still has the camera. Scouting, outdoors, and photography then became a great learning combination. His father liked to try out the new technologies at the time, like 35 mm and Polaroid, but his oldest son somehow ended up using the cameras. A local photographer and mentor also helped with understanding the visual and material photo art aspects at that time. Academic opportunities then pushed photography into the background until pictures became a preferred medium for documenting research results and teaching. After 48 years living in large cities of four states, the chance to rediscover rural Nebraska came with another career change. Now central Nebraska presents him with dynamic photo opportunities through rapidly changing landscapes and wildlife habitat.
From the Artist:
Photography is maybe my way of conveying what seems to be normally missed, but also seeing the mundane in a different perspective. Perhaps pictures are my subtle way of trying to capture the illusion of time.
