Wayne Rhodes views photography as the art of painting with light. His landscapes are particularly luminous, revealing the story of each place. He is attracted to scenes he can imagine as paintings, with the understanding that, as Monet said, "it is the surrounding atmosphere which gives subjects their true value." Other subjects of interest to him are birds and other wild creatures, boats, aircraft, and buildings.
Wayne has been engaged in photography for most of his life, but it wasn't until 2007 that he decided to pursue it as a serious art form. His first exhibit, "Windows on Virginia," was in 2012, and he recently exhibited at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. He and his wife, poet and author Suzanne Rhodes, enjoy the outdoors for its beauty and endless aesthetic possibilities.
