Herb Fixler has been a photographer for virtually his entire life. His interest in photography dates back to childhood. Over the years, his work has become focused on painterly color and graphic black and white imagery. Although he is largely self-taught, Herb has had the opportunity to work with many of the finest teaching professionals on today’s photographic scene.
His goal is to engage viewers of his work by bringing them into his imagery and stimulating their curiosity about what he or his subjects were thinking and feeling at the moment of image capture.
Herb’s work has been exhibited in numerous single artist shows in Manhattan dating back to 2003. He has also had his work included in multi-artist exhibitions at the Salmagundi Club, the National Arts Club and other venues, and is featured at Gallery 53 in Manhattan. His work is included in many private collections and corporate installations.
Herb has created this website in order to share with you many of the images he has made during his extensive travels as well as in and around New York City, where he lives. He hopes you enjoy his work and that you will return to his website often, as he frequently updates it with new images.
I hope you will find my photographic work to be unique, personal and artistically appealing. My subject matter is varied, and I experiment with styles and textures so my work doesn’t just reflect a single look. In addition to including monochrome, color and infrared photographs, my body of work contains images that are highly saturated and others that tend to be desaturated. Some images are highly detailed and/or high contrast and graphic, while others are soft and impressionistic. The goal of my work is to help you feel the emotion I felt during the image capture.
