Edward O. Savwoir is a Washington, D.C. based photographer with over twenty years of experience. While concentrating on special events, performing arts, fashion, portraits and weddings, his interest in photography is eclectic. Although self-taught, he acknowledges the influence of James Van Der Zee, Gordon Parks and Charles "Teenie" Harris. His style reflects an evolving portfolio. To him each image defines a moment in time. What differentiates his approach to photography is his documentary style, the deliberative process.  The redundancy of life imitating art is something that he would rather avoid. He seeks to document evidence of a continuum, i.e., fleeting moments in a trans-linear equation of light and time. He does not seek to capture the decisive moment; he seeks to define it.  His objective is to make an indelible mark  - to record images that define our destiny, measure the humanity of our souls, and document evidence of our existence, weighed in the balances of time.
