“Bike at Skatepark” Karen Poirier-Brode MD
Medium: Digital color photography
Dimensions: 12 x 8.25 inches
Artist Statement: “Bike at Skatepark” is one of those moments of suspended animation so often found in skate park photo shots. The feet resting on the pedals of the bike hovering above the concrete, the shallow depth of field, the contrast of colors against the neutral background create a tension, a sense of the moment in time. I feel drawn at present to artful expression in my photography while keeping a photojournalistic approach to my subjects.
