Greg Turco

Every year, Augusta has an arts festival called Arts in the Heart.  Mama and I have enjoyed going for the last couple of years and always manage to fall in love with a new artist or photographer.

About 2 years ago, we visited Georgia-based photographer Greg Turco’s booth.  His beautiful use of all-natural light and unusual subjects were completely mesmerizing and I think we pored over every image in his tiny tent.  Mama walked away with an 18×18 matted photograph of a gorgeous live oak tree (we lived in the Savannah area for years and the oak trees are a reminder of “home”) and couldn’t stop thinking about “Three Blue Chairs” from the abandoned places collection.

Knowing that she loved the piece but couldn’t bring herself to purchase both, I bought the Three Blue Chairs for her birthday.  It’s absolutely perfect on her green copper walls.

Susie fell in love with “Prison Walls” and got it for her birthday.

I think my favorite image might be the one below.  Can you guess what it is?

I also love this unbelievable shot of Wormsloe Plantation.

His use of completely natural light and unstaged subjects is what sort of sets him apart.  I’ll take one of each, please!
