About The Artist


Art Fernandez, a native of Carmel, California, has been photographing since age 10. His interest in photography was sparked at the age of four by the gift of a camera from his father. Over time this interest opened doors to creativity and enabled Art to play with mood and lighting. At first with small cameras, he experimented with local scenes of Point Lobos, Pebble Beach, and other non-descript moments.

While attending Humboldt State University in Northern California, his interest in photography became more serious. By the age of 20, he had moved to large format cameras and alternative photographic techniques. It was at this time that Art began to photograph almost exclusively in black and white.

Art has traveled extensively throughout the Western United States finding the unique in the otherwise ordinary. His subjects range from architecture, industrial, landscape, and long duration photography.

Art’s work has been featured in national publications and has been selected for use by the National Park Service.
