Artist Statement - Christian Murillo Photography

Welcome, and thank you for taking the time to look at my photographic portfolio.

As a natural landscape and adventure photographer I am constantly searching for wilderness that I find both in my travels and near my home in Atlanta, Georgia. The focus of my work is to humble and inspire humanity with the power of nature.

Capturing the raw essence of nature must be done in the most organic way, with both natural light from the most spectacular moments and also a conservative approach to post-processing. Albeit at times I use some artificial lighting in astrophotography to help build a relationship between the night sky, the landscape, and the viewer. My style is further distinguished with the use of unique shooting angles and disciplined study of geometric arrangements in the natural world.

The largest inspiration behind my work and the reason why natural landscapes are my subject of choice is largely due to my passion for environmental conservation and my awareness of the fragility of each ecosystem. It is all but guaranteed that the wilderness areas of today may not be in the same condition in the very near future. This gives my photography a documentary purpose, as well as artistic fulfillment. Please join me in not only enjoying our natural wonders, but also doing everything in our power to protect them.

Thank you,

Christian Murillo
