Historical Context:
While spending over 40 years as a professional graphic designer, photography is where Bill Chardon can combine his attentiveness for detail with his love of nature. Photography is the perfect excuse for Chardon to spend time with his family, taking in the world around him. On his work he states, “I photograph what appeals to me. It’s as simple as that. It may be the broad vista, or the details in the sand at my feet. It may be a scene from the created world, or an old vehicle abandoned in a field…There are times when I am seeking out what to photograph, and others, when opportunities grab me. The important thing to me is capturing an image in the most powerful way possible.”
