George Fellner, a photographer and an architect, is committed to a dual life-path involving visual discovery and design, relating to both the natural and built environments. Inspired by his travels as well as his in-depth involvement with photo essays, George’s photographic subjects include landscape, architecture, travel, portrait, and objects of nature. The focus of his present work: Imaginary Realms reveals an endless search for the abstractions of reality. His process involves the macro-photography of stones and crystals, offering limitless material for evocative images.
Regarding publications, George’s photographs have been presented in journals, magazines, books, and travel guides. Nature Genetics, an international science journal, has featured three of his photographs for their front covers. INK Publications magazine featured the article Photographer George Fellner: Architect for Body and Spirit with an in-depth description of his art and methodology for Imaginary Realms. In addition, George’s photographs of some of his architectural designs have been published in a series of three books on architecture by E. Ashley Rooney. Furthermore, her upcoming book: Artist Studios will be featuring George’s studio space design and photographs from his Imaginary Realms series.
George’s limited edition prints have been exhibited at shows in art galleries at Mystic Arts Center, Guilford Art Center: Mill Gallery, West Hartford Art League: Clubhouse Gallery, and the University of Connecticut Stamford Art Gallery. He has also exhibited in solo shows at EO Art Lab Gallery and Mercy Center’s Mary C. Daly Art Gallery.
In addition, many of George’s limited edition prints are now part of a number of permanent art collections. The NYC headquarters for Nature Genetics exhibits three of his images. Most recently, the Yale Medical School acquired five of his images that are now exhibited at the Brady Memorial Lab.
George’s images provide a visual language to celebrate reality, explore its abstractions, and discover worlds within worlds.
