Wes Candela

Surrealist photographer. New York City based. Landscape, Urban, Nature, Portraits, Street Photography… With a preference for black and white monochrome images. Now photograohing in Medium Format.

Active for 20 years plus. I picked up on my love of photography and learned how to compose photographs watching films by the greats: Hitchcock, Coppola, De Palma, Scorsese, Kubrick, Fincher. And then I was introduced to the work of a king:
Ansel Adams.

My mantra is:
Only you can create a photo like you. Never compare yourself, never doubt. Love.
