Why do we photograph? So many answers to a simple question, but we all certainly share a few common reasons, no matter who we are and where we do stand as photographers. It may be to eternalize a moment, or to give someone a voice. To register beauty or document the ugliness of injustice. An expression of joy or a cry for awareness. To make a point, or because we just feel like it. We all share some reason to press the shutter.
Meaningful photographs exist for a reason, but they are not meant to be seen on small screens only. They need to be printed, displayed, looked at. They need to be a part of our lives, constant reminders of the emotions they make us feel. Be it in the pages of a book or a beautifully printed piece on a wall, these photographs deserve to have a life outside the digital world.
Moved by this firm belief, I created Ricardo Serpa Art Collections as a well-thought online art gallery. These carefully chosen sets show images from my travels around the world as a professional photographer for over 30 years. Now that they are made available through the online gallery, I hope these photographs will start a life of their own.
They are offered in small limited Editions, in three different sizes, with a signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity included for each print. Select your favorite images, decide on sizes and finishing options, and have your artwork delivered to your door, ready to hang. It's an easy, safe and fast process, designed to make your online art purchasing a very satisfying and rewarding experience.
I invite you to browse the collections and learn a little more about my work. If you find an image that you like and would consider having at home, be assured nothing would make me more pleased. To me, it’s a way of sharing special and personal moments with people who can relate to how precious these life nuggets can be. Enjoy your time here!
