Jonathan Stark's photography is an exploration of emotion, which he describes as "falling visually in love with people and places."
Stark has visited Morocco, Guadeloupe, Canada, Puerto Rico, and much of Europe.
A series of his photographs, France:Chaleur, is featured at Digital Silver Imaging in Belmont, MA, November 18 though January 14. An opening reception is November 19, 6-8 p.m.
In France, the city streets of Paris and the Provencal countryside became his inspiration. "I enter an interactive relationship based upon my own feelings in response to individuals and the intangible experience of place," he says. "All my recent work has been created by my desire to engage people in a moment of emotional intimacy. For the time I am shooting, my subject and I are partners in the process of expressing visually the passions that reside within."
A graduate of SUNY Binghamton in New York and Boston University, Stark studied photography, film, and broadcasting. He is director of digital marketing-video development at Houghton Mifflin. He pursued further photographic studies at the Museum School, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and New England School of Photography.
Stark has had solo shows at the French Library and Cultural Center in Boston. He won a bronze award from the American Society of Media Photographers in 2009.
