“The photos on this site reflect life all around me. The roses from our garden, the cats are all family, the landscapes , wild critters from my California foothill home, the ancient coins from my collection, the angels and memorial parks from my book Forgotten Faces and the golf courses, cemeteries and Gold Rush images originate from my neighboring communities.”
PHOTOGRAPHS — THE SEED OF EVOLUTIONARY IMAGERY
"I value and enjoy the photographic image for its ability to express, engage and evoke. I find it is also the genesis for evolutionary expressions of itself as another form of art – composite, oil, sketch, digital, etc. Within today's digital darkroom a single image now contains the seed of entirely new versions of itself - often producing unforeseen yet welcome results."
Please explore and enjoy all my Folders and Galleries to discover for yourself what resonates with you - photographs, art and amalgams of both." – Ron Horne
FINE ART, CALENDAR AND GREET CARD IMAGERY
Ron enjoys and delivers photographic expertise as a Fine Art and Natural History photographer with images employed for greeting cards and calendars as well as company image design and messaging. “Nature blesses us with unbridled beauty everywhere - in the sublimely formed rose, the grandeur of a living mountain range or the sentience of our animal allies. If I can, in any way, capture in an image, the power and wonder evoked in the moment or alive in the wild, I feel privileged to share it with you.” - Ron Horne
In addition to photography and photo-art, Ron is the author of Forgotten Faces - A Window Into Our Immigrant Past, widely regarded as the original and definitive photo-history on memorial portraiture and its insights into 20th century immigrant America.
Forgotten Faces has been featured in the History Channel Magazine, selected for the cover of Publishers Weekly and honored with scores of positive reviews as summarized by Writers Digest - “This is a unique and intriguing history of immigrant America. Featuring beautiful photographs throughout, it is very well-researched and a valuable contribution to the literature.”
Midwest Book Review agreed, "Horne…provides an outstanding survey of memorial portraiture as its own art form. …featured for its important cultural insights as well: immigrant history comes to life in an outstanding visual and written survey of a unique art and memorial form which should not be missed."
