One of my goals in writing for Metroblogging DC is to expose the unexposed raw talent that’s sitting right here in our little
state city of Washington DC. There are photographers, and then there are photographers, but some of them take the medium to a new level, a level that approaches “art” status.
One of these photographers is Joshua Yospyn. Originally from Detroit (aren’t we all from somewhere else?), Mr Yospyn has been living, breathing, and documenting the DC area for over five years now. His photos “provoke response, elicit emotion, or give obvious definition to the viewer.” Not many postcards here. The goal is ART.
I love this shot of his titled “Tunnel Tracer”. The exposure and shutter speed were dead on to catch this stream of light through one of the tunnels in town. The lines, the flow, the slopes, the patterns – all incredible. Even if he is a Nikon man (yes, he’s the proud owner of a D2X and a boatload of other gear), he knows his stuff and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for his eye, his lens, and his shutter finger.
Be sure to check out his website at www.yospyn.com.
