Local artist offers Pure Michigan photography in ArtPrize

Jon Hartman

Rockford photographer Jon Hartman, a 1995 Rockford High School graduate, has been accepted in ArtPrize 2012. His entry is a series of Michigan landscape photographs entitled “Pure Michigan” which will be on display at the Ledyard Building, which is located directly across Monroe Center from the Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM).

“I have always been intrigued by photography. It wasn’t until birth of my first daughter that I actually picked up a camera to document her entrance into the world, and I haven’t put it down since,” said Hartman. “Whether it be a be a Michigan beach, engaged couple, or an old decaying door, I love taking pictures that tell a story. Frequently traveling with my camera in tow, I look for the unseen details in ordinary things. I have especially enjoyed capturing images of downtown Grand Rapids, highlighting the growth and draw of our ‘big-small’ city, and of our naturally beautiful state of Michigan. I am a member of the Grand Rapids Flickr Group and photographed the 2011 Grand Rapids Marathon. My work was also featured in the Amplify Grand Rapids event, part of the G-Rap Initiative.”
