Artist Spotlight + Inside the Artist Studio of Vincente Weber

ambiguous + contemporary + ethereal

These are the three words Vincente Weber chose when asked to describe his work. Keep reading to learn more about Vincente, his process, and inspirations!

“I deem myself more an artist than that of a traditional photographer and have always been interested in alternative image making processes. Experimental photographic practices such as double exposures, shooting with expired film, & hand tinted photographs have all inspired and interested me. More recently I’ve been exploring making photographs by hand. This has lead me to make weavings from my photographs.” 

Describe your creative process. Are there any rituals or rites of passage you exercise before you begin a new piece? 

“It begins with slicing my photographs into strips, working them back together and framing them in frames (you guessed it) that I also make myself. I find the challenge and reward of always creating new work to be such an important part of my creative process. To stay motivated and consistent. To see with new eyes. Craftsmanship is just as important to me as the creative process itself.”
