Joe Long “Artist Statement 2019”

Moving through the many stages of life the images reflect my visual interest at the time. I have always enjoyed the process.

Presently, showing examples of my work with figurative beauty, portraits, still life, landscapes, documentary, and my ongoing fascination with multiple images, also showing examples of my professional work.

I hope that my photographs will be an inspiration to you today and in the future.
