darkroom (the ocean is art—original)

by Ryan Pernofski
$220 USD

Buyers note: this is an original piece; hand lettered - so there's only one available.

I believe that the ocean is art and I love to approach photography also as an art form. It's more than a hobby or a profession. I love to push boundaries, experiment and hopefully create something unique & worth sharing along the way.

I guess this image is a bit of a nod to the old way photographers worked. In the "darkroom" a long, unseen process took place. Now, in the digital age - where we expect fast food and quick replies - we forget the rule we see in nature and real artists alike. That good things take good time.

I hope we never lose the art of the unseen. The willingness to go unnoticed or even to fail. I hope this artwork inspires you and anyone else who sees it in your home, work or living space.

About the Ryan Pernofski Store

For over a decade I've been sharing my photography on various social media platforms and over this time it has reached further than I could have imagined.

I started photography to try my hand at capturing the beauty of the ocean that I grew up surfing. And I created this store to share the beauty of the ocean with you in a more tangible way than just the glow of your screen.

Every wave or "ocean-scape" on my store is selected to both compliment & transform your space. My aim is to blur the lines between the ocean & art.

Made for and by—a lover of the ocean.

This is why I love to shoot the ocean
