Biography

Richard Silver uses a photographic technique known as Tilt-Shift. This practice has taken off over the last few years in the fields of photography and advertising. It consists of giving the impression of looking at a model or a miniature. However, the spectator is looking at a real and full-size subject. The playful use of soft focus and the clarity alters its interpretation and creates an optical illusion. The soft focus affects the foreground and the background and the extremely reduced depth of the tilt-shift resembles those found in macro-photography. The combination of these different elements immediately leads the viewer to believe that it is a reduced model.  Having traveled the world to see the most recognizable iconic sights, his photographic style only enhances the viewer’s perspective to look at the world in a whole new way.
