Bio

Jay Burton is a nationally-exhibited, award winning photographer who began making photographic images at the age of eight. In addition to having done conventional photography in a variety of styles and subgenres, he has also explored panoramas and lenticulars. His interest has always been in engaging and communicating with the viewer. As he has developed as an artist those processes which facilitate that engagement and communication have become even more important to him. For the last few years he has concentrated on exploring the sensual through macrophotography-based abstract imagery.
