Bobbi Mercouri seeks to make photographs that transcend the medium’s ability to record a realistic interpretation of a scene. Mindful of scientific studies of perception and how the human brain filters visual information, she crafts images to communicate her feelings about what she photographs.
Mercouri’s strategy is to stylize her images, emphasizing the elements that are emotionally evocative and muting or removing color to reduce verisimilitude. Her career in graphic arts, mass media, and marketing helped her understand how pictures work -- how “color, movement, and composition work together to create images that combine both art and design”.
