Bradley Jay Meyer is a photographer, writer, theatre and film artist. He is a man of many talents and we are looking forward to the photography installation he will bring to Small Space Fest.
More about the artist: Meyer was born in Winterset, Iowa, the birthplace of John Wayne and the heart of the Bridges of Madison County. He spent much of his childhood growing up on an idyllic Kansas City lake. He later attended the University of Denver, graduatimg early.
Professionally, he has been selected for a wide range of projects and jobs. After 15 years as a financial advisor on Wall Street, he served as a strategist and the Chief Writer for two NYC Investor Relations firms. Subsequent consulting work included executing all aspects of a investment banking deal, developing marketing materials, business plans and strategies for several companies, and performing extensive patent research and writing. In 2010, he was the first in his Centriq Training class to earn Microsoft 3.5 .NET Developer certification, then performed marketing and software sales roles as the VP of Customer Solutions at Xtraction Solutions.
Creatively, he has directed and produced a set of plays Off Broadway, written several screenplays and book-length manuscripts, experimented with short films and secured representation by a literary agency. Since revealing his WTCsunsets portfolio in late 2006, he has created other engaging photo series plus novel nested art slash shipping boxes. His WTCsunsets portfolio has been selected in numerous juried competitions, featured in four art shows, and received local media coverage.
About the WTCsunsets Photos
My adherence to the principles of Straight Photography pays homage to the grandeur of the real world. Informed by an artistic sentiment hewed from reflection and honed by experience, I work with great patience to compose and capture definitive impressions of select moments in time.
Entries from the award-winning WTC sunsets series have won selection a record number of times at the American Juried Art Salon. The portfolio was kept private until 11⁄11⁄06 out of sensitivity to the victims of 9⁄11.
The WTCs are the result of my having observed nearly 4,000 sunsets from the Christadora House, which towers over the East Village at Ninth Street and Avenue B. Most represent the only photo I composed on that particular night, and the collection was further limited by a suspicious turn-of-the-century warehouse fire.
