About ZenTwig Fine Art and Photographic

About The Name
The name ZenTwig is in homage to a series of black and white images by photographer Ralph Eugene Meatyard. In an article from the New York Times, Charles Hagen wrote,
"... [Meatyard] photographed branches in closeup, leaving only one small area in focus while everything else is reduced to smudges and haze; these pictures have a delicate precision, with the twigs slicing through the photographs like three-dimensional calligraphy."
