Artist Statement – Tom Debiec

“Resisting the seduction of digital capture, I use film – a dinosaur. Film separates me from the instant gratification of digital. It allows me to take a step back and let time and memory detach me from the moment of pressing the shutter. I use cheap cameras of questionable quality. I experiment. I have to. The cameras offer little control over the basic fundamentals of photography, exposure and composition. I do the best I can with what I love.

I have been obsessed with photography for years. Dedicated to learning about it, practicing it, experimenting with it, and even dreaming about it. My photography is based on complex observations of simple things. Things I see in my travels around the block or around the world. Things are not as simple as they seem on the surface.

I look. I think. I take pictures. I wind the film.”
