Randy Richards is a local photographer and digital media artist from Groton, CT, whose work is instantly recognizable. In 2017, Randy won first prize in the manipulated image category at MMoA’s Photo Show 39 (juried by Joe Standart) and again in 2019 at Photo Show 41 (juried by Eileen McCarney Muldoon).
“Fascinated with the way time affects space, I explore combinations of different points of time. By overlapping different photos taken of a scene at different times, I create an altered sense of reality, a 4th dimension that allows the viewer to travel back and forth in time. Originating from acrylic paint in 1996, this style evolved into digital photo collages and also 3D Cubes in 2002. Today, after 20+ years, I continue to explore and evolve this style to enhance the visual experience even further.”
Randy became an Elected Artist member at MMoA in 2018.
