Irwin Nesoff

About the Artist

Weir River Studio- Fine Art Photography

Discovering his artistic eye after relocating to Massachusetts later in life, Irwin Nesoff has been inspired to delve deeper into photography.  Irwin considers photography his opening to the world around us.  His focus is on single subjects that have a story to tell and might be overlooked or noticed but remain in our minds for only a short time.  Through his photography he seeks to make these scenes that bring beauty and life to our world permanent objects of enjoyment.  He does not manipulate or Photoshop his photographs, choosing to represent the exact image as it is seen through the lens of his camera.

Irwin has been a juried member of the Front Street Gallery and he serves on the Board of Directors of the Hull Artists.  His photographs have been in a number of juried shows throughout the South Shore including: South Shore Arts Center, Hull Lifesaving Museum Sea and Sky, the Plymouth Artists Guild, Scituate Arts Association, Quincy Art Fest, Pembroke Arts Festival and the Marina Bay Arts Affair.  He has won many awards for his photographs including first place awards at the Scituate Arts Council, Pembroke Arts Festival, Marina Bay Arts Affair and Best Landscape Nature Image at the 69th Conference of the New England Camera Club Council.

Irwin’s work can also be seen in art books including: Hidden Art Treasure Art Magazine 2014 Yearbook; International Contemporary Artists Volume V; Featured Artists Volume IV and his photographs have appeared in New York Lifestyles magazine. He has donated photographs to support local organizations including the Paragon Park Carousel, the South Shore Arts Center and Wheelock College Student Scholarships.

When he is not photographing, Irwin enjoys teaching Nonprofit Leadership at Wheelock College in Boston where he chairs the Department of Leadership and Policy.  He also enjoys traveling and taking long walks on Nantasket Beach and in World’s End with his wife Paula, and spending time with his three grandchildren.
