About - Gary Grissom

I’m an artist who since the late 1970’s have been making images of places, people and things I’ve seen. The majority of my art for the last two decades has been depictions from Philadelphia locations close to where I reside.

I was trained as a painter, but soon became consumed by photography. I started making hand-colored silver prints that lead to other types of photograph making.

Currently my interests have included a series of photographs recorded through urban glass shot at an angle. The images are a result of the reflection, refraction and diffraction of light. The bending of light combines views of interior spaces with a reversed mirrored repositioned external environment. The optical collage-like effect of the light creates a fragmented sectioned universe. At times the photographs create a cubist-like depiction of the urban street. All these images are from one photograph, not a digital composite or from multiple exposures.
