Victor Romanyshyn

A painter in his early career, Victor lived in the east village of New York City for over 20 years. When he returned to his home of Peaks Island, Maine, he brought that painterly patience into his digital photographs of the natural world surrounding him on the island, as well as into his studio, where with only the “Rembrandt” lighting from the window, he creates still life images reminiscent of the old masters. First he paints a painting, then assembles a still life in front of it. He waits for the light to move and when it reaches the perfect illumination for the composition he makes the photograph.
