From Spa Song Bansuri by Manose

Canada's own Stephen Patterson is one of North America's leading fine art photographers in environmental settings. Citing the impressionists and abstract expressionists as key inspirations for his photography, his methods of addressing scale and composition produce painterly images that stimulate a sense of singular wonder in the viewer. The natural vitality of what seems to be a tranquil setting - a flashing glint of sunlight, or a passing cloud shadow - is luminously captured by Patterson; each in an exquisite moment that will never be repeated.
