There is nothing quite like Bryan Graf's photography portfolio, especially his Wildlife Analysis photo series. Stunningly original, it looks more like fabricated artwork than real images. By layering each image with different colors, exposures and vintage finishes, Bryan Graf has put together a breathtaking study of the woods and swamps around his native New Jersey.

To achieve these singular photos, Bryan Graf makes color negatives without a lens which exposes the film directly to ambient light and then brings two negatives together for beautiful abstract effects.

Born in Perth Amboy, Bryan Graf received BFA from the Art Institute of Boston and later his Masters Degree in Photography from Yale University. Since then, he has moved Peaks Island, Maine, where he lives and works.
