Meet the thirty9 Photographer
The “details and close-up perspectives” of the flora photographed by Bud Meadows create a delicate visual elegance not often seen in photographic art. Clean lines, sinuous forms and architectural compositions, are the marks of his unique style. “Most of my images have an extremely narrow depth of focus, which I use to lead the eye through my compositions.” The result is an abstracted or impressionistic look that imparts Bud’s own artistic vision of natural subjects, which draws in viewers who might be more interested in art and design than traditional photography subjects. Earlier in his career, Bud explored painting and silkscreens but returned to photography because it allowed him to “create expressive compositions directly from nature with an immediacy that surpassed other media.” Given that nature’s beauty presents him with endless inspiring possibilities for his vision, fans of Bud’s photography will have plenty of opportunities to revel in the inner peace one often feels when viewing his work.
