“Not all of us are so touched to channel Kinetic Energy into our still images like Ed Marshall. By definition, anyone fortunate enough to view the images channeled through this man’s eye will see rigid bodies forced into rotation via his personal frame of reference. His pictures represent that not too often alignment in a humans life where Timing (be the fly on the wall) meets Opportunity (shoot what moves you) and Focus (taste). We should all be so blessed…” - J.Wilson Fielder, Filmmaker/Bighead Scientist

“Ferocity, passion, tenderness, introspection and much more: Each of his photographs captures that instant in which the subject being photographed reveals a truth.

“I once had a conversation with a good friend regarding how his spiritual practice was called into question as “God” didn’t speak to him as directly as others. My reply to him was that Artists exist in a space akin to Warrior Monks. They exist within and without religion (a very human construct). The one and only goal of the artist is to bring visual to the Spiritual. No one documents a more beautifully rendered capture of atoms than Ed Marshall.” - Tim Fielder, Animation Director and Live Art Projectionist
