Josie Ortiz reviews Jason Engelund's Photo Enso Series
I've always been interested in the way light affects the perspective of objects. When you stare at transparent objects, when that light hits the glass so delicately, I can't help but want to keep that image, because I don't think I'd have the same experience again. Jason Engelund creates compositions that delve into light's capability to create abstract and dreamlike experiences. I think he has an interesting style combining photography and a sort of painterly feeling towards the images. I think this series gives a sort of ethereal experience to the viewer. It really gives you time to immerse yourself in the image which is what I think Engelund wanted the viewer to experience.
