A. Graziano Photography - trusted online seller of fine art photography since 2008
Anthony Graziano is an award winning fine art photographer, author and educator who has captured the beauty of the natural world through his photography for more than 30 years. As a workshop leader, he freely shares his knowledge and his books help everyone experience the serene beauty of nature.
As an advocate for preservation, he contributes generously of his time and talent in support of conservation organizations including The Nature Conservancy and the US Fish & Wildlife Service Refuge Complex on Long Island. He believes that our bonds to the natural world are instinctual and that we are drawn to nature as an emotional refuge and as a means of spiritual renewal. His hope is that his work brings a sense of peace to the viewer while, at the same time, creating deeper awareness and increased passion to protect our natural beauty and fragile environment.
As an artist, Anthony’s vision flows from what is perceived to what is felt and finally, to what is seen and his photographic approach often involves spending extended periods of time within a location to absorb it’s unique energy before attempting preserve the experience in a photograph. The resulting imagery is striking in its simultaneous ability to be both emotionally calming and visually stimulating. The vibrant color palette, layering and creative use of light are arresting and combine to convey a true sense of serenity. Anthony’s artistic vision and creative approach succeed in the very rare quality of capturing a true sense of time and place that draw us into his images allowing the viewer to “experience” the beauty of the natural world.
Anthony was honored by being selected by the Andy Warhol Foundation as an artist in residence and with solo fine art gallery exhibitions. He is a past board member of the East End Arts Council and the Friends of Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge.
