Dave Nibouar has been a semi-serious amateur photographer for most of his life. For
much of that time, photography was nothing more than a tool to record events, people and places. Digital photography
changed all that. Suddenly, photography stopped being a tool for documentation and blossomed into a means of expressing a
very personal view of the world.
From a philosphical
point of view, Dave believes that "less is more." He is not a technical photographer or an equipment junkie. Life
in the 21st century often seems mind-numbingly complex; his photography is an attempt to escape from complexity
and enter a simpler, more comfortable state of being. Equipment is minimal - a good quality digital SLR, one or two lenses,
and a tripod are enough. Being on a beach in the early morning with simple gear when the light is
just right is all he needs to be content.
favorite photos are like visual haiku poems - the extraneous material is gone and the essence of the subject becomes
clear. The initial photo is the raw material; minimal enhancements on the computer, like cropping and contrast adjustments,
help to tease out the essence of the image. When it's right, there is a connection between the artist's
eye and the heart of the viewer.
