Who would know Warner LeMenager better than he?
I Warner am a photographer with a background in many forms of presentation, even the study of watercolor at Art Center. But now I've evolved into an artist of photo rendering. I am also a student and collector of art, with the majority of collection being Japanese Woodblock prints.
As many others have done, they explore presenting their photo work as a Picasso or a Dali or even more to my liking Atget. Then others strive for the perfection of Adams or Weston. But I find if we are to grab one artist I strive to emulate with camera skills that must be the subtleness of Monet.
I am at the twilight of my artistic career and now pursue creating work others would like to own and hang in a place they are able to view daily.
I was born in Cicero, an Italian neighborhood of Chicago, but left at a very young age and moved to Long Beach, California where I was raised.
I didn't discover Italy until I was in my sixties and have since spent as much time as possible there photographing the beauty and uniqueness of its culture and architecture. I call it my second home.
In the world of marketing my photography I present myself as fotografo il migliore, but those that call me friend know me as Warner; besides my last name is too hard to pronounce.
