Steve Wewerka

Artist | Photography

My photography is a form of storytelling, leading viewers through images in a narrative process built upon suggestions, connections, and impressions. As an artist, I create visual metaphors that shape the emotional experience, opening up a dialogue between my images and viewer. The result is an entirely original work of art that represents a synthesis of our creative minds, thus a journey both in their creation and in the viewer’s response.

The colorful cultures of the people and the natural beauty of Northern New Mexico inspired Steve from an early age to pursue photography as a career. After graduating with a degree in Fine Art Photography, he worked for a number of newspapers and periodicals. At the same time he launched a successful career as a freelance photographer and has since worked for many companies as well as national and international foundations covering a wide variety of issues. He now resides in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The Gallery on First exclusively exhibits Wewerka’s Boat Collection, a Visual Memoir. The collection is printed on aluminum using a process called sublimation. The ink is heated into a gas and the gas is infused into the aluminum verses simply getting printed on top of the aluminum. This process results in vivid color and stunning reflection. The aluminum is light weight and ready to hang and comes in 8 square inch, 16 square inch, and 20 square inch options. The prints can be hung individually but are also phenomenal displayed as a triptych. 

The gallery offers special triptych discounts.
