curtis trent's first experience with photography
had him arranging relatives in the open prairie.
in many ways, this primary experience framed
the basis for his future work, with an emphasis
on environmental portraiture. he is inspired by
the variety within photography, where one day
you're shooting a child's open heart surgery,
and another, a women covered in moor mud.
while light and composition are always central
in his work, inspiration can come from something
as simple as photographing his daughter's barbie's
on the kitchen floor.
