Images from the PPA Loan Collection

Merited08aPeter Burg, M.Photog.Cr., CPP, captured “Evil Eyes” at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance car show. “I am always on the lookout for classic automobiles with distinct lines,” he says. He prefers photographing cars during the early morning hours, when the light is soft with little or no specular highlights. The biggest challenge in capturing this image was keeping people out of the shot. “Photographing these cars is like shooting into a mirror,” he says. Burg Photographix is based in Maitland, Florida, and specializes in commercial and architectural photography.

Merited08bWhile visiting Moab, Utah, to teach a landscape workshop, Randy Van Duinen, M.Photog.Cr., CPP, was tipped off by another instructor to check out Dead Horse State Park. Van Duinen arrived at the park just before sunrise, and as soon as he saw the juniper tree, he knew he’d found his subject, which he dubbed “The Sentinel.” Van Duinen had about 15 minutes before the sun would break the horizon. He walked all around the tree before composing this image just as the sun rose . Randy Van Duinen Photography is based in St. Petersburg, Florida, and specializes in architectural, landscape, and digital artist photography.

Merited08cThe little girl in “It’s All Attitude” has been a client of Carrie Clippard-Perez since she was an infant. “She is full of personality and spunk, and it’s a delight to photograph her,” says Clippard-Perez. Since the subject has a sassy style, Clippard-Perez brought out props appropriate to the session. “When I saw her outfit, I thought we should go with a rock star quality, and so I threw in the shades for that touch of attitude,” she says. Photography by Carrie LLC, based in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, specializes in baby and child photography.

Merited08dThe family in MJ Morgan’s “No Man is an Island” wanted a portrait at sunset on Utah’s Great Salt Lake. The weather was less than ideal that day, with rain before and after the session. At sunset the clouds were so thick there was very little light to work with, says Morgan, CPP. “But we remained undeterred. This is one of my favorite images from this cold, wet day.” My Style Photography specializes in fine-art and wedding photography.

George Tice

George Tice is one of the finest American photographers of his generation. His body of work has continually focused on the American rural and suburban landscape. The Lancaster, Pennsylvania series concentrates on the daily life of the Amish people and their integration with the landscape around them. Tice’s other work features the architectural and industrial motifs that identify American society. Tice is especially well-known for his printing skill. His image of “Country Road” is a fine example of this. He served as master printer for Edward Steichen as well as printing the portfolios of such artists as Frederick H. Evans and Edward Weston.

Miro Simko | Solitariness

Meditative Moments of Solitude Expressed in Black and White
Self-taught photographer Miro Simko captures strikingly secluded moments in his series entitled Solitariness. Each photo features a single car, truck, or person moving along an empty highway or a deserted back road. The strong contrast between one long strand of road and a single subject creates a powerful expression of loneliness and isolation. — by Katie Hosmer
