Both works evoke aquatic images and demonstrate Laser’s technique of transforming something ordinary into a work of art by looking at it in an unusual way. Laser is a Chicago-native, and a prolific fine art photographer with a portfolio of over 800 pieces—all hand-held, 35mm, uncropped, full-frame Cibachrome prints. Laser performs his own color processing in order to achieve the subtleties he is after.
