Originally from Southern California, Coleman Scott Moffett has lived and worked throughout the U.S. and currently resides in the Mount Washington Valley of New Hampshire. This diversity of experience has helped him mold a free flowing mix of vibrant colors and starkly toned monochromes into a singular artistic vision. A proponent of expressionism in photography, Cole strives to capture the subjective aspects of a person, story or scene. Over the years, he has studied with Gregory Heisler Jay Maisel and Jennifer McClure.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO PHOTOGRAPH?
Photographing people is very rewarding for me. Having worked as a Clinical Social Worker, I've learned to appreciate each person's unique character and life experiences. I strive to show people in a personal, yet visually compelling way...my goal is to bring a bit of what is inside to the surface. I also love the natural world and landscape photography is one of my favorite genres. The same goes for abstract and conceptual photography....both are genres that provide an abundance of creative freedom.
WHAT IMPACT HAS DIGITAL EQUIPMENT HAD ON YOUR WORK?
Digital cameras and computer software have allowed me to broaden my artistic view. I still shoot film on occasion and will continue to depend on the techniques I leaned with that media. I've also started working with photo encaustic, which adds an entirely new dimension to my work. Overall, creating an image I like and believe in supersedes any allegiance I have to a particular set of tools.
QUOTES THAT GUIDE YOU IN YOUR WORK
"Visual ideas combined with technology combined with personal interpretation equals photography. Each must hold its own; if it doesn't, the thing collapses."
"Each precise object or condition or combination or process exhibits a beauty..."
