Travis Melin was a professional photographer from 2001-2015 and lived in Minnesota. He used a large format 4"x 5" camera with film and then began to incorporate digital captures into his body of work. He considered his camera a conduit between his spirit and the natural world. His field process tended to be less linear than most other photographers as his actions and decisions were primarily based on “feeling” an image rather than seeing it. Continual artistic achievement was his personal challenge. A successful image in his mind, “is one that evokes an emotional response from the viewer, embodies a genuine sense of spirit and is sound in artistic form.” In the digital age, he felt there was too much emphasis placed on post production in an effort to make a great image rather than taking the time to get it right in camera. Art was “a personal exploration into the core of who we are at the moment of creation. The process of conveying feeling and emotion through art is met with challenges, difficulties and ultimately breakthroughs. ”These breakthroughs introduce (to both creator and viewer) a new perspective. Art was his story, his life and most importantly his voice that he left with the world.<p><a href="https://ww.wildwingsdealers.com/DirectionsWEB/webcart_category.php?catid=MELIN-"><span style="color:#005ebf; text-decoration:underline">View photographic prints by Travis Melin.</span></a></p>
