The Artist

I am inspired by unique landscapes and the beauty of nature. Through a study abroad program offered by the Savannah College of Art and Design I spent the summer of 2013 in the small, medieval village of Lacoste. Lacoste is in the Provence region of southern France, an area known for its warm light, luminous skies and vast landscapes. Provence looks much as it did when Cezanne and Van Gogh created some of their greatest works there. 

My series “Light of Provence” spans the moments from just before sunrise to after sunset and strives to capture the extraordinary beauty of Provence and how it has remained unchanged for centuries. The ancient architecture, fields of fragrant lavender, rural landscapes and an incredible night sky unaffected by city lights gave me the feeling that I had taken a step back in time.  I hope my photographs leave viewers with at least a little of the sense of wonder I experienced every day I spent in this idyllic place.

Scott Blake is a local artist and Jacksonville native. He has two college degrees, an Associate in Arts from Florida State College at Jacksonville and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design. He owns a small business, The Tilted Tripod LLC, that specializes in fine art photography, fine art printing and photo restoration. Scott is also a member of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP).

His photographs have been exhibited locally at the Beaches Museum, the Art Center Cooperative, the Jewish Community Alliance, the St. Augustine Art Association, Florida State College at Jacksonville (Kent campus gallery and South campus gallery) and internationally at the Exposition des Estudiants de SCAD in Lacoste, France. Scott spent a summer in southern France as part of his student experience at the Savannah College of Art and Design. The natural beauty of the Provence region of southern France continues to influence his photographic choices. He captures images of what may soon be the forgotten past and the wonders of nature’s diversity.
