Exhibits “America’s Vanishing Landscapes” at Port Jefferson Gallery
Who is Wayne Williams
Wayne Williams, whose career spans three decades, brings his PhotoArt to Long Island for the first time to
Wayne has had an eclectic career. He worked as an editorial, advertising and illustrative photographer for
over 25 years with clients ranging from Alcoa to Disney to Nissan. As a photographer to the stars, Wayne
has photographed at their request or for the covers and inside articles of countless magazines ranging from
Rolling Stone, Redbook, Good Housekeeping to Ladies Home Journal, Parade and People, hundreds of
celebrities including Jay Leno, Woody Harrelson, Anthony Edwards and Courtney Cox to name a few.
Wayne’s wife, Marsha Posner Williams, is an Emmy winning producer of memorable sitcoms such as
Soap, Benson, Amen, Night Court and The Golden Girls.
For the past six years Wayne has been creating his art utilizing the latest technology, mostly computer
related imagery, to help create what people are calling a global gallery. In that time Wayne has been
creating a unique series of natural images, which express his love for the truth that nature and art belong
with us; it nourishes our spirit. He begins by searching out the perfect location and relishes in the
excitement of capturing that sentiment on film; that singular magic moment that nature and light provide.
Each of these locations is a place of meditation. Then after working his skills in today’s state of the art
darkroom, he finally outputs the nature images on an Iris Printer. The prints are done on 35” x 47” sheets of
high quality 500-lb. cotton fiber/water paper called Somerset. The paper is ideal for it absorbs the Inks and
it seals with special UV coating to protect the images from spillage. You will simply be left asking is it a
painting or is a photograph?
