Global Impressions: The Elders

Global Impressions of The Elders series of portraits by Steadman Uhlich
What are Global Impressions?

The Global Impressions you see are verbatim quotes from people around the world who have viewed Steadman’s portfolio of images or individual images and have written public comments of their impressions of what they see in the portraits.  These “impressions” or interpretations of what these viewers see in the expressions and compositions of these remarkable portraits give an indication of how the public sees something special in each of these unique portraits.

Some impressions statements make it clear that these portraits move people emotionally in unusual and unexpected ways.  What is remarkable is that these people who wrote these comments did not know the individual (the subject) in the photograph.  In short, they were totally unrelated, not friends, not family, and had no personal connection to these people in the portraits.  Yet, they saw something special and felt strongly enough to write their impressions.

Steadman Uhlich: “I find the Global Impressions comments to be a fascinating thing to read each time I see one added.  These impressions show something special as these photos connect with people from around the world.  It often touches me as an artist when I read that people are moved emotionally by these images.  As an artist, it is one of my goals to create art that has depth of feeling and causes some reaction from the viewer. They are sometimes called ‘stunning’ and sometimes they even bring a smile to a face or even a tear or two. In fact the most satisfying thing I have experienced as an artist was watching as 14 different people broke into tears, literally, as they viewed these portraits. It was unexpected and truly an interesting thing to witness with my own eyes.  Two other people wrote to me that they broke into tears while viewing these portraits over the internet.  I find that amazing because these are not photos of people in distress, pain, war, or suffering. These are portraits of people who hired me to create something special for them.”

The Global Impressions are all honest Verbatim Quotes from written comments about Steadman’s work. The sources vary, but some are internet visitors, amateur and professional photographers, professional portrait artists, and people from around the world who admire his work.  None are related in any way to the subject (person in the portrait image), so these are not quotes from friends, family or relatives.

These Global Impressions can give you insights into the quality, impressiveness, and results that Steadman delivers to his clients and people he helps.  They can also give you some insights into his ability to create portraits (perhaps of you) that will generate feelings and positive emotions from the viewers or public.  This is important for you to consider.

For The Elders series, there were so many Global Impressions comments written by people around the world that a special document had to be created to show you all of their comments.  So please click on the color block button below (right) to download a PDF file to view those comments. Or click here, Global Impressions of The Elders Portraits.

What is also special is that these comments were all about people who felt that they were no longer “photogenic” or pretty or beautiful or handsome because they no longer were young. Yet, as the Global Impressions comments show, they still have an ability to touch people emotionally and to project a sense of character, strength, compassion, and warmth.  These qualities, along with their own unique “beauty” make these portraits some of the Global Favorites on Steadman’s websites.  A link is also provided so you can see the actual images that prompted these impressions.  Follow the link to another page on this site where you can see the Impressions comments beside the portraits.  These portraits are mixed in with other ages on these pages, so simply click the ”Next Page” link on the following pages to see the various images and comments.  There are many Elders portraits, so click through the first 50 pages to see them all.

Testimonials & Comments from a Wide Range of Very Satisfied People

Art Gallery Visitors

There are 140 Verbatim Testimonial Quotes you can read from Art Gallery Visitors who saw Steadman’s Art and Photography in an Art Gallery. These quotes are from people who saw his work up close while it was hanging in an art gallery at full size, often at “Life Size.” While you are able to view hundreds of photographs on this website or in Steadman’s online portfolios, you are only able to see these are low resolution and small sized images. The real photos Steadman makes are generally much larger than what you are seeing online. In some cases these photos are up to 5 feet tall! Others have been 10 feet wide! Even his portraits are generally life-size and so most are seen larger than you can see on your laptop or computer. In addition, the high resolution prints are amazing for the amount of details seen, the sharpness of details, the textures, and some even have amazing optical illusions that astounded art gallery visitors. So, if you will read some of these Art Gallery Visitor comments, you should get an idea of how someone may respond if you display a portrait or fine art photograph that Steadman has made for you, whether it is in your home or office.
