EDWARD HORTICK - Background
Over the past 15 years, Edward Hortick has attended courses at the International Center of Photography in New York City to study under instructors that gave him the opportunity to further develop and hone his own technical and artistic skills in photography. At ICP, he also learned the art of expertly post-processing and printing his own fine art photographic images.
Recently, he expanded upon the artistic aspects of his photography taking courses at the acclaimed Santa Fe Photography Workshops. This led to learning more exciting techniques to incorporate in his image-making and printing. He additionally studied with professional photographers at the well known Silvermine Arts Center in New Canaan, CT.
While living and working part time in NYC for many years, he realized the city presented a fertile environment to focus on “Street Photography.” Taking his camera with him, he frequently walked the many unique neighborhoods around Manhattan and the outer boroughs to catch impromptu photos of people and places in the city. He took many interesting photographs and out of this new experience, he produced some award winning images.
With the unexpected advent of the Coronavirus pandemic, Edward decided to limit himself to photographing in the State of Connecticut where he resides. He reinvented himself in 2020 by purposely focusing on a different genre of photography. His latest endeavor is landscape and nature photography. He also has an ongoing love of photographing marine and coastal scenes.
Edward Hortick displays his fine art photography in juried exhibits sponsored by several art organizations where he is a member. Just some of these include, The Carriage Barn Arts Center in New Canaan, The Ridgefield Guild of Artists, and the Rowayton Arts Center where he is an exhibiting member.
