About JB Burtch

I have never read an "artist's statement" that made any sense.  Unless text is a part of the art itself it's always seemed superfluous.  When I took the photograph above I wasn't quite sure what I had captured.  By rendering it in black and white I saw how it expresses this current phase of my life.  I'm on a journey, heading out into the unknown. 

This is my first attempt to show my photographs.  I'm grateful to William Moos, my art teacher at Western Reserve Academy,  who taught me that to really see a picture you actually have to look at it.  The world is full of art. A photograph is just another way to look.
