Richard Estes Artwork - Photorealistic Photography

Richard Estes is a photo-realistic photographer. This artist is well known for his geometric landscapes and stunning visuals. He is thought of as one of the artists who laid a foundation for the Photo -Realist movement.

Richard Estes is a native New Yorker who makes a habit of focusing on urban landscapes in his artwork. Like Da Vinci and many other artists, he used several different techniques in order to complete a single work of art.
Some of Richard Estes artwork includes:
  • Telephone booths
  • Times Square
  • Salzburg Cathedral
No photo-realistic piece that he does can be referred to as a photograph, painting or print alone. He often uses all three of these techniques in his work. He usually starts off with a photograph of a part of a city and then applies painting techniques and printing techniques to it.
