“What matters most to me as a photographer is not just capturing the beauty of a thing or person, but also conveying a particular feeling.” says photographer Steven Dempsey. Indeed, his mind is in the advanced stages of the creative process. “A pretty picture by itself is just that but when I can find a way to give it soul, then that is truly a beautiful thing.”
Born in Dublin, Ireland, Steven moved to New York with a rock band. When that crashed and burned, he took up oil painting before getting into web and graphic design. “Static imagery led to an interest in video and I created Americonic Films with director/composer Glenn Scott Lacey. My interest in moving images eventually steered me to my strongest passion to date, photography.”
For Steven, the creative process became really interesting when experimenting with Pinholes.
