About The Artist

IMG_9219b

Tony Cifani lives and works in Greensboro, NC and was born and raised in Evanston, IL, home of the Northwestern Wildcats as well as actors John and Joan Cusack. Also, the movies Uncle Buck, Sixteen Candles and Road to Perdition were filmed in Evanston.
When Tony was twelve, he got his first real camera, an Olympus OM-2 SLR. Tony’s grandfather was a photographer in WWII, and gave Tony his first darkroom lesson. Tony was hooked for life.
Tony’s love of art photography continues to this day, and he can often be found roaming the city streets or maybe a state park looking for gorgeous light and interesting things to photograph. Even though Tony mainly shoots digital, he also shoots with a 4″ x 5″ view camera (film).
The view camera offers no short cuts or conveniences for the photographer. It’s a large and bulky mechanical instrument that requires all of the photographer’s attention and is physically demanding. But, the rewards can be great – a perfectly exposed black and white film negative can yield beautiful and sublime darkroom print unlike anything else.

Favorite photography quote:

“There are no bad pictures; that’s just how your face looks sometimes.”  – Abraham Lincoln
