I love to use photography is any way possible in my work. We live
in a generation that accepts photography as an art form. When I
take a photograph I never know what I am going to do with it in
advance. I have achieved some of the best results by digitally enhancing
some of the most ordinary images.
To me, the abstraction will result in one of two ways, either by
the uniqueness of the original photograph or, in the extreme digital
enhancement of an ordinary image.
Either way if the end result is fresh and different, I leave it
alone and let it speak for itself. To me this is no different than
creating an original oil painting or mixed-media painting
PLACE OF DREAMS

201 W. Main, Arlington, TX
"Caddo Lake, Place of Dreams" is an exhibition of Original
Paintings, Drawings and Fine Art Photography by Bruce Tinch.
The exhibit celebrates the contribution of Mrs. Lady Bird Johnson
and her life-time of work dedicated to natural conservation and
beautification programs using wildflowers, as well as her work for
wetland conservation and anti-litter campaigns. Viewers will be
emerged in a unique total experience of the senses including natural
swamp sounds playing through the museum, tanks of live water lilies
in the main museum lobby, and tree limbs covered with Spanish moss.
The exhibition was launched at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower
Center in Austin, Texas in September 2008 and was claimed by the
Center as the best exhibition they ever housed, attracting a large
attendance from all over the U.S.
