Blink welcomes you on November 3rd from 6-9pm to a reception for the new exhibition of photographs from local real estate agent and creative thinker, John Repoza.
“Preparedness and opportunity are where success in life lies”
We had the chance to have a great conversation with John about his history, artistic process, and overall outlook on life. Here’s a preview of his story from our upcoming featured artist blog:
John’s artistic process begins when he wakes up in the morning. He explains, “preparedness and opportunity are where success in life lies,” and as such, he always has a camera with him. Every day he takes from 100 to 1,000 photos, capturing anything and everything that strikes him as a potential moment. Repoza calls it an intuitive, educational process and says he doesn’t go out with any plans or expectations. There is no “creation” of a shot, or means of production behind the lens. Instead he seeks a balance of lighting and nature and shoots whatever speaks to him. His open attitude about shooting results in an ability to notice and photograph moments of sublime and startling natural phenomenon. “Creativity in its true sense is not an intellectual pursuit. In fact, it’s proven to be an entirely different part of the brain altogether,” he says. His refined presence of mind is contagious, especially when viewing his work.
