G. Arnell Williams has been interested in the
photographic image for most of his life. As an undergraduate college student, he took
20 cross country trips on Greyhound buses with a 110 camera in hand. Not a single
image came close to capturing what he witnessed.
In 1991 he
purchased a 35mm SLR camera, and in an Avis rental car embarked on a six week trip
across Canada to Alaska with an eye to capture the spectacular scenery.
While the landscape remains his greatest interest; his
foremost passion is making dramatic images, and he will follow it wherever it leads.
If this happens to cross genres, so be it. He loves viewing great
images of other photographers("a marvelous source of inspiration") and
reading the thoughts of the masters.
47 years old and holds a bachelor's degree from California
State University at Long Beach and a master's degree from Yale University.
