Lynn Swigart

Lynn Swigart’s photographs offer visual delight without sentimentality or pretension. His eye for abstract beauty does not submerge but instead completes and elevates the human reality of the scene. This vision gives us works of art in which solitude and communion become united and indistinguishable, moments of contact between permanence and impermanence. “You, too, have this marvelous world passing before you,” say these photographs — a cherubic face with an infectious smile, a boy’s joyful stride with a balloon, a moon discovered in a metal tank, a cobbler at work, a turn on an empty carousel.
