Hello! I'm Sean Gold. Nice to meet you!
I'm a serious photographer, who is also a self-proclaimed adventurer, illusionist, traveler, truth seeker, and philosopher. I believe that my camera has led me to see, experience, question, think; and all around live more. It's my excuse to explore and to discover this spinning rock in the middle of space we call Earth. I hope you'll tie your shoes up tight, and join me on my adventure.
I've always been mesmerized and forever curious of this strange world, with it's amazing features, different landscapes and many different cultures. I have always enjoyed taking photos of the places I've been but I never felt that they did my surroundings or subjects justice, they did not convey the feeling of wonder, of bewilderment, of perspective that I felt, they were empty representations of lines, shapes and light. They represented in a weak fashion where I was, but not what I felt. I then began to teach myself more and more about photography, and thus began my romance with light and shadow.
Since then I've pursued traveling and photographing the world, substituting each in order to excuse the other. Traveling in order to photograph and photographing in order to travel. Yet they both feed the true addiction and craving that I possess; Curiosity.
No matter what seemingly simple thing you may look at, if you look at it long enough, and think about it deep enough, you realize how marvelous it truly is. Through my travels and through my photographs I discover truths and perspectives. And these images are for you as much as they are for me, for I would like to make you see things in a different light, or to think about them in a different way, to not just have you look, but to have you see. The real voyage of discovery consists, not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
As my days as a professional Illusionist taught me, the magic happens in the moment, and if you're not in the moment, you're missing out on the magic.
My photographs, or rather, slices of time, are my best attempts to take those fleeting moments that pass far too quickly, and savor them just a bit longer.
Wealth is in moments, and as Lewis Carroll framed so beautifully and brilliantly “Alice: How long is forever? White Rabbit: Sometimes, just one second.”
