TRANSFORMATION: Water as Art

Featuring: Roger Fishman

This four-part collection explores water as a symbol of our innate ability to transform our lives—and the world we live in—for the better.

Three atoms, two hydrogen and one oxygen, combine to transform into water.

Water is power. And powerful. It creates and sculpts life, societies and our planet.

Water itself can transform between three different states: liquid, vapor, and solid.

This collection defines and explores a fourth state: Water as Art.

In this series, you will experience architectural icebergs, abstract water and melting ice sheet compositions, and calligraphic glaciers. All of these images are created to be emotionally evocative in order to generate intrigue and engagement with the subject matter.

These photographs were shot in Greenland and Iceland, while hanging out of the open door of a helicopter. This extraordinary perspective of looking straight down onto planet Earth eliminates any familiar visual context. It requires you to fully engage your imagination. So allow yourself to be transported to—and perhaps transformed by—the world of water in all of its extraordinary glory and power.

TRANSFORMATION: Water as Art  brings you to inaccessible places on our planet. And thus enables you to access your dreams and desires for transforming yourself and the world we live in.

ARTIST BIO

Roger grew up in a small town in Connecticut, financially poor, but rich with dreams of exploring the world.

As he got older, he was driven to become financially successful, working 80-100 hours per week. The hard work paid off. He had a successful career in corporate America, and eventually created his own successful business.

After his son was born, his life changed… he started to alter the way he lived his life:
He spent quality and quantity time with his wife and son.
He started to live his own childhood dreams of art and adventure,
and he decided to make a difference in the lives of others, and in our planet.

Roger now creates his own art projects. He seeks to challenge and inspire others to live their lives in a more full, present and purposeful way.

His original creative focus was on wildlife. He camped in blizzards on Antarctica to photograph emperor penguins. He crawled on his hands and knees towards cheetah in Africa so he could get an eye-to-eye connection to their spirit.

Recently, Roger has focused on aerial work – photographing while hanging out of a helicopter in Greenland and Iceland – for his latest project, TRANSFORMATION: Water as Art.
