"The Spaceman"
Photographer Website
Photographer, Edward Donato has been shooting haunting photographic images for nearly two decades. The mysterious, unpredictable images, with their deep emotional grain, conjure up an unfamiliar spiritual enchantment. The photographer is now back, working in the studio and on location, shooting exciting new images. The most recent of the series, is a Civil War era spaceman/ astronaut. The photographs are created on 4x5 and 8x10 large format negative film and printed using conventional methods. Some of the images take nearly a year to plan and as long as six months to produce. Most of the props and effects are designed and manufactured in the studio, by the artist himself. More of the photographer's work can be viewed on his website.
