About the Artist
Gregory Kuiper is a Canadian fine art photographer who started his career working as a computer engineer. He has traveled extensively searching for inspiration for his images. In 2014 he released his first fine art photography book: A Day In Paris.
Kuiper has mentored with several fine art photographers to help him realize his vision; among them were Rorber Farber and Allen Birnbach.
"When you look at Gregory Kuiper’s images you see a sensitivity, a mood, an understanding of form and composition; but there is actually even more. I’ve learned through the years what a challenge it can be to instill a creative vision in someone who has already gained success in other non-artistic fields; it requires the use of the other side of their brain. Quite often this presents a rather frustrating challenge for me as a mentor, more often than not most photographers just don’t get it. You can see from Kuiper's images that he’s an exception and that’s why I see even more. He has found a deep sensitivity to life and its surroundings that has translated into a vision."
“Gregory Kuiper is one of those extroverted people who dazzles you with his wit, charm and insightful mind. No wonder that he brings all of that to his images. Following in a long tradition going back to Atget, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Helen Levitt and Lee Friedlander, he celebrates the beauty in a vibrant city environment. Landscapes, architecture, people and objects are all fertile ground for his inquisitive mind and perceptive eye. The resulting photographs have beauty, yes, but also a sense of intimacy, pathos and at times, great humor. The images speak both to the man and his humanity, and his fascination with the world he so clearly loves.”
