LEARN MORE ABOUT BRIAN VAN DE WETERING: 

Brian Van de Wetering is a fine art photographer living and working in Southern California. He was born and raised in San Diego, California. Brian's interest in photography grew in fits and starts. When he appropriated his father’s Olympus OM-1 in high school he began seeing the artistic possibilities in the captured image. But film was expensive for a young man and money often went to other forms of entertainment. A career in software development kept the wolves from the door while playing in a punk band provided an artistic outlet. Photography was mostly in the background.

In 2010, success in the Anza Borrego Foundation’s annual Desert Photo Contest rekindled Brian’s photographic passion. His photographic practice takes him in many directions including light painting, medium format film, toy cameras, home-built cameras, and mobile phone photography. Brian's has been included in many group exhibitions around the United States and he continues to play in the Irish punk band he helped found more than 20 years ago.

From the series The Acting Hand:

I've seen friends, family, and acquaintances taken from this world seemingly at random and death and destruction each night on the evening news. Although I understand that some events are truly random, I still feel a strong emotional draw to imagine some intent behind these events, the Acting Hand, even if only in metaphor. This invisible hand comes to life in this series of staged vignettes depicting a variety of unfortunate events designed to prompt further reflection on causation, randomness, and free will.
