|Jonathan White||Biography: The Colors of the Urban Landscape, a collection of colored images of city scenes, both conventional photographs, and digital special-effects images.
I've always been interested in photography, and I enjoyed my photographic education, both at the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, Ca., and at the Rochester Institute of Technology. My major artistic project, The Colors of the Urban Landscape had 2 starting points. One was in June, 1989 when I visited Paris to attend my brother's wedding, the other starting point was in January, 1990; when unemployed, I decided to take a trip into Manhattan, and shoot a few rolls of film. The results were quite encouraging, so I kept coming back.
Soon I had accumulated a large stockpile of images, and in a short time I was having art shows in galleries on Long Island. After that I moved on to some of the galleries in Manhattan. As my creative project progressed, I started to notice the colorfull graffiti murals. Soon I took notice of one particular graffiti artist, Chico, who works mostly in Manhattan's Lower East Side. In 1993 I met Chico, and he liked the way I captured his murals. A couple of years after that Chico joined me on a collaboration project, where he painted art work on some of my prints.
The result of this project inspired me to have a website created, and the original version of my website was made in 1996 by a friend of mine, Christopher Grauert. Meanwhile, things continued to progress with my fine art exhibitions, and I even served as the curator of 2 group art shows (July, 1995, and April, 1999), A Fraternity of Artists, held at the East Village's La MaMa La Galleria. The other artists were all artists from my Fraternity from RIT, Alpha Epsilon Pi.
