Richard Greene brings to photography a unique personal history. As a trained classical violinist and Bluegrass Fiddle Master, his non-stop career as a touring musician, recording artist and educator spanned from 1960 to 2013. At the same time he has been obsessed with photography, from home darkroom explorations to today’s digital revolution. Richard's four primary musical goals have always been Expression, Innovation, Technique and Composition. In applying these same intentions to his photography he finds that musical and photographic compositions are actually quite the same: both depend entirely on the artistic placement of real or imagined elements, both start before using the instrument, both start with seeing.
