The world he photographs is vast. Landscape photographer, Lance Ekhart, sees his world through a wide-angle point of view.
In his work, you will see, textures and shapes, rich colors and depth and intense beauty. The details in his images will reach out and grab your attention.
His photography, like his sailing, comes from a deep passion. He sails into both activities with every fiber of his being.
Sail away with Lance, as we journey through his images.
Artist’s Statement for Anacortes Magazine March 2013
Earth, air, fire and water traditionally represent the 4 elements of our world. As a nature lover and sailor, the ocean, islands and clouds have always intrigued me and when all three of these things are present together in beautiful light (fire from the sun being the source of the light) and I am able to capture it, I am fulfilled as a photographer and as a witness of the scene. This synergistic coming together of all the elements, for me, elicits a transcendent moment, like a clearer window to the universally attractive coherent correctness that is Nature and brings forth a rich emotional response of sublime and undefined poignancy that I am compelled to share.
Photography, for me, is part of my search for wholeness, completion and the meaning of why we are embedded in this beautiful world. The more I witness and photograph the rich tapestry of Nature the more I am grateful for my connection to it.
