  • Artist’s Statement

    As a photographer, I am inspired by the power that photographs hold. I take pleasure in knowing my images invite you to be immersed in what I felt at a particular moment in time. Photography, being the true form of social documentation, is crucial in providing viewers with meaning of the cultures in which we live.
    Grant invites the viewer to be immersed in what he felt at a particular moment, with the ability to capture the real world. Inspired by architectural, documentary style photography, and our amazing landscape, Grant approaches photography without expectation. Grant finds layers and textures very important, and with the ability for an image to tell a story, those textural layers create conversations.

  • Biography

    Although not formally trained in the art of photography, I have always had a love and appreciation for the arts. I believe that this passion has given me the knowledge, the ability and the desire to create beautiful and professional artwork.
