Richard Paul Weiblinger writes that "Through my photographs I strive to reveal a passion for exploring nature and our world. I prefer subjects that lead to images with chromatic strength and use creative lighting to not only illuminate my subjects but also to give them a dream-like, surreal quality. The process of photography allows me to pursue the art of transforming everyday objects into images that progress from "everyday" to art."
