Artist Profile

Ray Shaw

Medium: Photography

Description:  Hartford area themed photos

My photography captures the tones, shapes and energy of Hartford. Through the lens, I express that which words cannot convey and I tell the stories on the faces of both people and places. My technical explorations are always in the service of truth and emotion, and are a means of digging ever deeper into our shared experiences and ideas. My fascination with photography began at the exact moment I beheld a photo shared with the class by our 11th-grade geometry teacher, it was a photo from her European vacation. The artistic representation of an urban area and the feelings expressed in both the total picture and the details struck me and stayed with me. I have worked most of my life in the related field of television production but photography remains my first and greatest love. My photos have long enjoyed publishing success, beginning when I was a teenager and my work was selected for the book One Day USA, A Self-Portrait of America’s Cities. My photographs have been published in a variety of newspapers including the New Britain Herald, Bristol Press, Newington Crier, Manchester Journal Inquirer, Middletown Press, and a Connecticut tourism magazine. I am currently shooting events for the University of Saint Joseph, and I have been active in other freelance work.
