Profotos Member Biography - Bob Sanov

Writing about the meaning of a photograph is a little like explaining the punch-line of a joke. If it requires an explanation to be successful, then it misses the point entirely.

When I set off on a photographic journey, I rarely have a specific goal in mind, but prefer instead to explore the possibilities as they reveal themselves. I am drawn to light and form rather than subject matter, whether it be the sensuous contours of a sand dune at sunrise or the sensuality of the human form.

Much of my work in the last few years has been centered in an area of Southern Utah known as the Colorado Plateau. This is an area of eroded sandstone canyons frequently referred to as “Slit Canyons”. The photographic challenges of these canyons is considerable (flash floods, rattle snakes, incredibly difficult lighting conditions), but they represent to me some of the most spectacular places on Earth. Unfortunately they have become increasingly popular with tourists in the last few years and consequently less photographically desirable.

The darkroom is where I feel the images really come to life, although no amount of darkroom magic can salvage a poorly made negative. My darkroom techniques include dodging, burning, multiple filtration, flashing, bleaching, unsharp masking…anything it takes to make the image come alive!! It is not uncommon for me to spend several months (in some cases years) to get what I feel is a truly expressive exhibit print. Fortunately, I enjoy the entire process.
