Self-described as having a three-to-five-year attention span, Bruce Wilson is a fine arts photographer whose work reflects his broad interests in the overlooked beauty in nature’s smaller landscapes and collaboration among both individuals and within families. These interests, and the challenge of portraying them photographically, balance the exacting technical work that has composed the majority of his career as a mechanical engineer.
Wilson credits an undersubscribed photo review class as revealing to him some of the ways images could be made more cohesive and more interesting. Since that class, he has pursued his interests with vigor. Recently he has exhibited his work in group shows and a solo show, “Musicians at Work and Intimate Landscapes from Portugal” at a large coffeehouse galley.
His current projects include novel ways to capture intimate landscapes, especially ponds, and symphony musicians with their instruments.
