Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery (LST) is very proud to announce that Joe Calleri, Australian fine art photographer, is now our featured artist and he will be presented in the Gallery’s Artist Showcase for the next 30 days.
Since Joe’s initial entry into the Seascapes 2011 Art Competition he has entered 5 different LST art competitions. As indicative of Joe’s photographic skill and talent, he has placed in every LST competition that he has entered. Most recently, Joe received a 2nd Place Overall award for his photograph titled “Green Wall with Black Shadow” in the Gallery’s All Photography Art Competition held in September 2011. He also received a 3rd Place Overall for his “Circus Comes to Town” image in the Gallery’s CityScapes Art Competition which was conducted in March 2012.
Joe states about his photography: “My images reflect a profound statement by Japanese Artist and Photographer, Hiroshi Sugimoto: “Art Resides Even in Things with No Artistic Intentions”. Anything around me can be beautiful. It all depends on how I look at the object. Each day I challenge myself to find beauty and fine detail in the everyday, the innocuous, and in the small things that others may ignore, step over or around, overlook or perhaps take for granted.”
Joe has exhibited his exciting, colorful and dramatic images throughout Australia, the United Kingdom, and in the United States. His theatre publicity images have been featured in The Age, The Herald Sun, MCV and Real Time.
He trained at the Australian College of Photography, Art and Communication (ACPAC) in the early 1990’s. Joe’s photography can be found at Artist Website
