November 2016 : New York Collector writes about seeing "Roof":
My God, "Roof" is truly beautiful. It is so other worldly and yet real. It has the mystery of early Stieglitz when he plays with the light. I don't know why, but it makes me want to weep. Thank you.

The one thing that is clear from viewing your site is you have an amazing eye for lighting and composition. Your still photography is incredible, I am sure is so much more impactful when printed on metal.
July 2016: A Harlem, NYCollector writes:
Rick Wise’s photographs speak to composition, color and his play with light. He magically transforms everyday scenes and familiar objects into works of art. Printing on metal adds depth and richness to the images in the “Things” and “Time-Flows”series, and intensifies the vivid beauty of his work.
