Allan Bruce Zee's color photographs range from his abstract series, "Rustscapes", where he reveals the colorful mythology camouflaged in the often overlooked macrocosmic surfaces of rusting cars and trucks, to an expanded vision which interprets nature's landscape and man's imprint upon it.
Allan's imagery emerges from travels throughout the United States, Europe, Mexico, Bali, Tahiti, and South Africa. His interest in oriental philosophies permeates his work. Since 1984, he has enjoyed printing all of his photographs in the darkroom, interpreting the slide to create the most expressive print possible. In early 2004, he began to make the transition to producing his prints from digital scans of his slides, which can afford even more interpretive freedom while maintaining the same high quality.
In addition to providing fine art photographic prints for display in homes, offices, medical facilities, and a variety of other settings, Allan can negotiate use of his images for publication in books, magazines and websites. His image bank includes over 30,000 photographs catalogued by subject matter and place, so email or call with your specific needs.
