Bill Baker - A Sense of Being
The intention of my photography has always been to present elements in space and moments in time simply as they are, believing that each has its own significance. Most of my images are meant to be meditative, to quiet the mind of the observer, and resonate on a sensory level.
My choice for images has always been influenced by Eastern thought and aesthetics. The use of emptiness in composition often evokes a sense of timelessness allowing a connection between the observer and the observed. I want people to cease trying to intellectualize and just feel themselves being there, a reminder of the transitory nature of ourselves and everything around us. I began doing photography more than 30 years ago while living and teaching in Navajoland near Teec Nos Pos, AZ.
I moved to Tucson in 1988. From the beginning I have believed in the words of Lao Tzu: "Give people a void to look at and simplicity to hold. Then there will be little selfishness and few desires."

“I am a painter with a camera; I love to play with colors, shapes and patterns. Playfulness is too often lost in our daily lives. Today, most of my prints are large. I enjoy trying to enlarge my images as much as possible, using as many different processes as I can. I have found that I can do this on photo paper, canvas, or watercolor paper as Giclee Prints.”
