Elliott Erwitt described photography as an "art of observation" stating, "It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."
Elemental examines the relationship between earth, wind and water and the ephemeral or transitory beauty often overlooked.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
After 22 years working in the media industry, Scott Farrell made the decision to follow a more personal, meaningful path by officially launching Scott Farrell Photography in March of 2012. His scope of work covers everything from landscapes, nature, and rural and urban scenes to architectural, abstract, portrait and macro photography.
A marketing major from Fairleigh Dickinson University, his first cognizant introduction to the power of photography came from a high school Humanities class writing assignment about Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans and the FSA. The project had a profound influence that lead to his development as a photographer.
“Each time I look through the viewfinder to capture an image I try to imagine how photographers Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, or Ansel Adams might have seen the frame. I also contemplate how painters Andrew Wyeth and Winslow Homer might have interpreted a particular scene with regard to texture, tone, composition and lighting. These influences are omnipresent as inspiration and fountainheads of my appreciation for the art of photography.”
Exhibits at the Greenport Theater are a joint effort by East End Arts and the Greenport Theater to introduce exceptional artists and their work to the East End communities. Special thanks to Josh Sapan and the Greenport Theater for providing this exhibition space.
