M. Axel Wikstrom
My philosophy is that a good photograph should stand on its own. It can be a pretty picture, invoke thought, provoke analysis, or bring out emotions. I strive to include these qualities into each of my photographs.
Traveling, living overseas, and witnessing history has resulted in a perspective and curiosity that I think contributes to the creative process. It has taught me that there is more than one way to accomplish goals, and to perceive the world around us.
Dedicating most time to photography I continue to make images and strive to perfect my craft with the camera, in the darkroom, and within my mind.
Drawn to traditional methods and materials, and having a fully equipped darkroom, matting room, studio, and frame shop I am able to create silver gelatin photographs in-house, from start to finish.
