About the Artist
Photographer Terry Amburgey did not study art in college, opting instead to earn a degree in Foreign Affairs. Perhaps this fascination with what is foreign helps explain why Amburgey's work is so externally driven. Amburgey takes pride in allowing his photographs to supply the raw material for visual narratives that offer “a personal story to each person viewing the work.” A contemplative reverence for nature is revealed through landscape compositions of breathtaking scope, bursting with brilliant hues of mountain mists and fading light. Through muted reflections in black and white, Amburgey captures the primal relationship of seascapes, rivers and ponds to sun and moon. He also delights in the textural complexities of objects by studies of light filtering through glass beads as well as the luminous images created by reflecting surfaces of holiday ornaments. Amburgey unleashes the same enthusiasm for cityscapes as he does landscapes, contrasting his pensive reverence for nature with a frenetic appreciation of the surreal and artificial beauty of urban light and architecture. Terry Amburgey’s photographs offer the viewer entry into a dualistic world of pastoral splendor and cosmopolitan marvel.
