In a world where many are plugged in to a cyber world. It is hard to believe, that you are not being programed. This work is a portal, that uses a geometric algorithm to unlock a cyber experience. The use of technology can lead to a state of technological suspension. This suspension forces non-technological bystanders to navigate around the living statue. The trigger for this suspension is no more than a tactile image that is reminiscent of an archaic format that changes to a retina stimulus when viewed through a digital Lookingglass. As the viewer places the virtual reality headset on, they become fully engrossed in a virtual reality world. In this new environment, the viewer finds themselves alone, yet, aware of the world they left behind. Every sound and smell is a reminder that the digital world can be a cold, and lonely world.
INPhotos Fine Art
Welcome to INPhotos Fine Art
INPhotos was started by Isidro G. Pentzke and his best friend Nicole Web in the summer of 2000. Both Nicole and Isidro graduated from Wellington Community High School, where there love for photography and arts came alive.
Their love for photography led them to many opportunities. One of which was to photograph local martial art schools. After delivering the photos to the schools, both Isidro and Nicole noticed how much everyone loved their work. This is when they discovered every moment was special, so they decided why not capture every moment in a photograph. Which later became their motto.
20 years later both Isidro and Nicole still love taking photos. Isidro went on to continue his love for the arts by going to school and receiving both his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Florida Atlantic University and his Master of Fine Arts from Lesley University. In 2021 Isidro will receive his doctorate in education and leadership from Lynn University.
Over the years INPhotos has captured hundreds of images for every kind of event from small intimate moments to presidential campaigns. This is what makes INPhotos the best photography company the versatility.
