Meet Noah Gilman

Today we’d like to introduce you to Noah Gilman.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
Having lived in San Diego my whole life, it isn’t hard to find the beauty all around this great city. My photography journey has been a rewarding and positive experience for my life in many ways. Having been through drug addiction, chronic illness related surgeries, and traumatic brain injury that left me without a smell or taste, my experiences from life contributed to my respect and appreciation for the precious time that I get to spend behind the lens of my camera. Not only has it been a positive outlet in my life, I have met great friends through photo taking; even fell in and out of a relationship with someone who was involved in my photography journey. I am at a place in my life where I find deep enjoyment from meeting people, taking my time to understand them and then transforming their unique personality into a tangible moment of time. More importantly, I am grateful for this beautiful city and the rewarding views that can be found on almost every inch of land.

Please tell us about your art.
My art is representation of how I have seen the world since I was young. I used to sit in the back of my parents car and imagine that there was a person skating along the street we were passing. The imaginary skater was going up and down the sidewalks and flying up into the trees. But my brain saw this entire scenario play out as a movie, I watched the sun bleed through the trees, the lighting from a driveway casting shadows across a road. Ever since then almost everything I see plays out in a cinematic type style. I have a part of my brain that is scanning for those beautiful, cinematic style lightings/settings. I am very fond of watching movies for inspiration. I believe I make my art for myself. It has to please my eye most importantly. I want people to take away that I was passionate about my art, but that I wasn’t too afraid to make mistakes and have fun.

What do you think is the biggest challenge facing artists today?
Fear but also uniqueness.

Almost everything looks/sounds/is the same.

You can always tell when a photo/song/movie is amazing, it moves you. Art has underlying tones and (if we are lucky) a beautiful story. I respect people today for being brave and putting their work out into the world. We need more fearless creators.
