ARTURA PHOTO ART

Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography
April 26 – May 17, 2016
Reception: Thursday, April 28, 2016 6-8 PM

Tony Svensson, the Swedish photographer behind Artura Photo Art, is fascinated by neglected beauty, by the small objects that are overlooked in a person’s scurry from one place to the next. Artura, a portmanteau of “art” and “nature,” is an apt name for Tony's work, which takes the viewer into the embrace of a flower, to the precarious perch of a water droplet, or to a world of color that is immediately accessible but too often ignored. The artist compares his walks through nature to a stroll through the world’s largest gallery. “We are all always going somewhere,” he says. “We never stop to see the beautiful little things just a few inches away.”

Tony, who didn’t receive formal training, bought his equipment with money he earned by selling sketches and painting signs. “If you want to work with something you love,” he says, “you learn in every possible way.” By putting his art into the world, Tony is advocating for nature. He is telling his viewers to slow down and look, because there is beauty everywhere, waiting to be seen.
