I love Richard Silver work, so today we got the pleasure to publish an exclusive interview with the photographer and get to know more about him and his inspirations. Get to know better Richard Silver work!
How and why did you get into the photography Industry?
My first real break was because a friend of mine worked for Lumas a German Photo company with international galleries. She presented my work, it was accepted and from that point on I’ve been selling my photos.
Where did you study, etc? I’m self taught but have taken numerous courses in NY at ICP and SVA too.
How would you describe your photography style? I would say it’s experimental. I’m always trying to figure out new and different ways of showing my work. I shot way before digital was around and now digital gives me the freedom to experiment with my imagination.
How varied are your photographies? Very. I do Tilt Shift, Vertical Churches, ( I came up with that) and Time Slice ( which I like to think I was the first).

Do you have a signature touch with your works? I would say my signature work these days area Time Slice series. I travel the worlds great cities and photograph them in this style.
What do you love about being a photographer? The freedom to travel and go photograph the world.
What are some of your most popular works? My Tilt Shift photos sold through Yellowkorner Galleries. I’ve sold thousands of these photos throughout our 4 year relationship.

Tell us a bit about some of your work and what you love about it. I love the uniqueness of my work. My Vertical Church Series gets the most positive feedback of all of my work. Most people are amazed with the results. Why I also love this series is that I never know how they will look until I work on them on Photoshop.
What’s your favorite and why? I would say my South Africa church due to its spectacular stained glass colors. Cathedral of Christ our King, Johannesburg, South Africa
Is there anything exciting that you are working on at the moment that you can tell us about? I’m always traveling and doing my 3 series: Tilt Shift, Vertical Church and Time Slice but nothing newer than continuing with these Series.

What is your philosophy on photography and life? See as much of the world as you can. Simple.
What are your photographic dreams/goals? To be on the cover of National Geographic and get paid to travel and photograph (more). This past month on the cover of United Airlines Hemispheres magazine so I’m on my way.
