New Sculpture by Ross, the chainsaw carver

By pablophotographer
Strong winds brought many trees down. I noticed this wooden sculpture, done with a piece of a fallen tree. It is an impressive piece of art especially if you work with a chainsaw. I had a conversation with its creator and offered to photograph him next to it. He posed without the chainsaw in the beginning but I suggested him to hold it so to show others what tool had he used to make it. I felt like Milton Rogovin the American photographer of the working class. I suggest you see look for his work. He had said "I photograph everyday people. Rich people have their own photographers." So there is Ross the chainsaw carver, in his workspace with his tools and his latest creation. Yes I have mailed him the photo.

and also may i be the first to comment and vote brill pic i can now see what you mean and buy the looks of it really casual pose but really talented with as a cainsaw carver and the black and white format really whats the word ? brings certain points to centre focus like the fallen tress , the fantasic carving and the sheer talent coming from this man.
I have promblems wen it comes to trying to find a focus point yet you seem more than 3 in most of your photos

An interesting picture, I have seen such carvings but never a man who created one.
