In May 2021 Peerspace Magazine published an article entitled The 8 Best Landscape Photographers in Providence. I was surprised and honored to have been selected, and I deeply appreciate the recognition given me and the other area photographers highlighted. Thank you Peerspace!

Below is an excerpt:
Providence landscape photographer Michael St. Jean attributes his fixation on photography to his father, who gave him his first camera right before a trip abroad to the UK. While he also shoots architecture, real estate, and other genres, travel and landscapes remain his artistic passion. Michael’s landscapes have a subdued, moody element to them that’s especially evident looking at his black and white photography.
Shadows are allowed to add a sense of tranquility and aloneness that’s rare in the typically vibrant world of landscape images. And his eye for subtle lighting conditions is what informs Michael’s pastel-tinted skies. Coupled with his preference for long exposures of the water, large expanses of his images have a smooth texture. And this smoothness offers an excellent contrast to the more rugged stone and wood elements in the frame.https://www.peerspace.com/resources/landscape-photographers-providence/
