Brian A. Vikander's photographic artistry flows to the inner side of the human equation. Through his visuals we come upon an evocative side of humanity, to which we all innately relate, for we recognize our human similarities and rejoice in them. He is one of a diminishing breed of individuals who continue to seek out our globe's most unusual corners to chronicle the face of our ever-changing world.

Vikander, while completing University work in Sociology/Psychology, is self-trained and self-taught, in the discipline of photography. Untrammeled by the boundaries imposed by photographic educators, he has unceasingly sought to apply a personal vision, which has always allowed his photographic perception to stand apart. The design of his imagery is to create a faithful, visually realistic and arresting impression from the other's perspective.

The purpose of his journey is to change the state of being in the soul, to awaken sensitivity to the feelings of others, to reveal the unity underlying our own nature and to fructify and refresh through the integration of our capacity for insight, understanding and joy. His photographs are storehouses of spiritual energy and they transmit this energy according to the quality of attention that we bring to them. The effects of this energy can be described as happiness, awareness, tranquility, or a willing surrender of our private concerns to a universal experience.

The 30 year chronicle of his photographic virtuosity has been seen in virtually every domestic and international publication that deals with the exotic inclination of our globe, including: National Geographic, Paris Match and German GEO. Recent awards include: the World in Focus competition; the American Society of Magazine Photographers worldwide competition; the Banff International Photography Competition, the Rocky Mountain International Photography Competition; and the CANON USA photography competition.

Additionally, Brian has been a guest lecturer at the prestigious YPO (Young Presidents' Organization) Universities (India and Hong Kong), the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Plexus (international organization studying complexity) and many other professional business groups, globally. His photographs are part of over 200 museum, government, corporate and private collections around the world including: The Government of India (New Delhi); The GETTY Museum (Los Angeles); and The Peoples Republic of China (Beijing)and MGM Inc. He has participated in over 40 exhibitions and solo shows.
