Steve Perille

Steve Perille’s photographs are deceptively simple. They are of real people doing real things, and of real places that are seemingly unremarkable.  Through his photographs we are drawn to the beauty of ordinary moments. We walk right by what he chooses to photograph; we filter out the ordinary and pay no attention. His vision of the world is unfiltered; he sees the ordinary as special. His images of children are statements about childhood that anyone can understand. His images of men at work remind us of an uncle or someone we once worked for. The young lover images are universally understood.  His timing of gestures and expressions captures fleeting, revealing moments. Light form and content come together to form these timeless images. Life itself is what he sees with seemingly little effort.
