Ben Engle’s photographs are astounding to anyone who has ever picked up a flyrod. Tracing the delicate line described by a cast, Engle’s images collect movement, time and light in a way that could only happen in flyfishing. Line and Light: Ben Engle’s Kinetic Energy captures the young photographer’s work in a series of images that vibrate with energy and motion while still maintaining the elegance and grace of flyfishing’s most elemental skill.
“Ben Engle’s photographs are astounding to anyone who has ever picked up a flyrod. Tracing the delicate line described by a cast, his images collect movement, time and space in a way that seems to defy them all by creating something akin to a pure “light sculpture.” His work is spiderweb fragile yet bursting with kinetic energy; infinitely complex though composed of the simplest motions; graceful and still bold; abstract though firmly planted in the natural world.”
