“My fine art practice is a visual meditation on the ineffable essence of life.  Incorporating the study of Taoism and Zen as well as a survey of scientific research into the subconscious physical and mental responses to visual stimuli (particularly fractal patterns)  I use my camera to create notan studies of people, places, and primordial botanical elements. Through this work I am attempting to transcend the limitations of language and create a philosophical space for contemplation and self-reflection.”

Ira Gardner has been a professional photographer for 30 years and teaches photography at Spokane Falls Community College.
