Mo started his art career at 13 when he recieved his first camera, a Kodak instamatic 126, for his birthday. After just two rolls of film, Mo knew he was in love with photography.
During high school, Mo learned as much as he could about all the various camera types. It was there that he first used a 4 x 5 studio camera.
For over 50 years, photography has been a passion for Mo. While he does shoot digital photography, large format 4 x 5 film remains his true love. Under the black cloth, maniplulating the ground glass, alone with the subject before him – that is where Mo is happiest, crafting and capturing that perfect moment and mood.

The watercolors and oils of Rick DeMont, a former Olympic swimmer, are impressionistic and, not surprisingly, often focus on water.
The swimmer-turned-artist presents two approaches to perspective in his work. By addressing perspective in this manner, he explores the fine line between representation and abstraction.
The first method uses traditional landscape, which draws attention to distant boundaries with the use of the horizon. The second approach abandons the horizon and confronts the viewer with an up-close, abstract representation of water and its surrounding landscape. The reflection in the body of water often provides insight into the surrounding subject matter.
DeMont explains. “As I paint the light, I am not interested in an accurate reproduction, as I am in representing the feeling of what makes a certain place special to me.”
DeMont’s impressionistic rivers and mountains convey at once a sense of ease in the landscape and a visual excitement from the colorful brushstrokes.
