“Who sees the human face correctly: the photographer, the mirror, or the painter?” – Pablo Picasso
“Arthur Jacob’s photographic art possess a glowingly rhythmic quality that is at once beautiful and intriguing. The floral images are breathtaking in their depiction of flowers that are presented as natural art, each petal complementing the others in a finely wrought composition. Some of the flowers on a black background are stand-alone- natural portraits, while others fill their compositions with elegant forms. Arthur Jacob also creates dynamic abstracts that infuse each work with fluid form and design. The use of color in Arthur Jacob’s photography attests to his expertise of using darks and lights, soft and bright, and subtle as well as brilliant hues. His monochromes especially illustrate a mastery of form that gives depth to his images. Arthur Jacob’s fine art photography is a combination of the ability to envision a superb image with the skill to create the artwork.”
-Ellen Fisch, Internationally known Abstract photographer

The results are astonishingly detailed works that exploit color and imagery in an intelligent and beautiful way, resulting in pieces that are both joyous and intriguing, graceful and potent, and possess such a popular appeal that it is almost impossible to imagine a wall that they would not beautify.”
