Breaking into the world of professional photography can be an exceedingly difficult feat. For German photographer, Uwe Gsedl, his new exhibit titled "Through My Eyes" is a validation of his choice to pursue a career grown from a hobby.

Gsedl received his first camera, an Agfa Agfamatic, while still a teenager living in Frankfurt. Though his early shots typically centered on more pedestrian subjects - friends, concerts, etcetera – the artist would find a passion for imaging that would carry him through a typesetter''s apprenticeship and a career as a graphic artist.

After enrolling in photography classes at the College of DuPage, Gsedl found himself enraptured by the artistic and technical side of portrait work. The artist tells OnTheGo.com that studying photography allowed him to "see[ ] the light. It was my ''ah ha'' moment."

In this new exhibit, Gsedl uses a subtle combination of natural and artificial light to frame the more subtle aspects of his subjects. A standout among his work is "Madame," a black and white print capturing the elegance and confidence of American model Shalondra Rae.
