Bobbi Mercouri Artist Bio:
Bobbi Mercouri seeks to make photographs that transcend the medium's ability to record a realistic interpretation of a scene. Mindful of scientific studies of perception and how the human brain filters visual information, she crafts images to communicate her feelings about what she photographs. "There's magic in the light," she says, "and magic in the details." By finding and featuring the magic, she hopes "to enable the viewer to see past the brain's filters and experience your personal vision, the emotional content of each piece." Mercouri's strategy is sometimes is to stylize her images, emphasizing the elements that are emotionally evocative and muting or removing color to reduce verisimilitude. Although her intent in photography is to share her vision with other people, Mercouri does not like to title her photographs. "I feel that beyond my vision of the scene are the individual experiences of the viewer, and I don't want to influence that response" with words. Instead, she relies on her control of pictorial elements to communicate "the emotional content of each piece." She has worked as a Web designer for Intel, an audio assist for ESPN television, and is an award-winning video producer/director, photographer, graphic designer, and marketing manager. She’s working on on becoming a self-taught artist, so be sure to “LIKE” her page and see what she’s up to next.
