Humboldt Sunsets – By Matthew Busse – Photography Book Recommendation

Humboldt Sunsets

Book By

Matthew Busse


Written by Joelcy Kay

Editor & Curator – Edge of Humanity Magazine



Sunsets are cyclical events available to almost everyone on earth.  They are nature’s greatest spectacle. A daily reminder that we are part of this creation but powerless in the presence of such beauty and the energy it emits.  Sunsets are the connection between light and darkness, an explosion of light and color before night takes hold.  And we stand to attention each time an opportunity to watch it unfolds.

Matt’s images show how grand a familiar event can be as he captures the sunsets in Humboldt. The power of deep colors tells many stories as one flips through the pages; it feels larger than it is, almost as if you were looking at these images on a theater screen.

‘Humboldt Sunset’ displays 31 photographs; every sunset awakens your senses as if you were looking at page one for the first time; the depiction not only resembles paintings but carries so much energy that it seems to have a life of its own.

Image 7 depicts the early evening stealing daylight under a deep blue and reddish sky. 

Image 9 features a simple scene of ocean and sky, but the light on the water coming onto the shore makes my feet feel wet. Here is that connection between humans and nature coming to life again.

Looking at image 15, I see an abstract painting (moving) as my eyes follow the display of colors as darkness invades.

My personal favorite is number 11; picturing a goldish and blue sky being chased by heavy clouds and rain.  The depiction is dark; sky, weather, water and land all harmonic telling a story.

Matthew Busse’s ‘Humboldt Sunset’ is poetry on canvas.

 Edge of Humanity Magazine project.


The NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY is designed to connect art seekers and collectors with artists DIRECTLY.  The gallery is not a mall, but instead a collection of remarkable works of art that bring together artists and potential buyers.

Following Edge of Humanity Magazine‘s footsteps of publishing unparalleled content from artists and photographers worldwide, the NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY is on a mission to provide it’s viewers art that is unique and diverse.


Written By Joelcy Kay – Curator

Every piece of art, crafts, or textiles, hanging on my walls or ceiling tells a tiny passage of my life.  Most of it was acquired during my travels.  Many of these treasures are damaged whether because they were broken on arrival, as the pieces were tightly stuffed into my backpack, or weathered by the unforgiving Florida tropical humidity.  But in the end, they are my precious processions and they are part of the stories I tell.  It feels good to have rugs hanging from the ceiling, masks on the walls, and drinking my morning coffee thinking of the mugs’ tale.  The point here is that art has a lot to offer each one of us; ART IS VERY PERSONAL!

The NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY offers that personal experience as the individual has the opportunity to buy the art from the creator and by doing so a new event to remember is born. When you hang the work of art on your wall there is a story behind it; an artist you now know and follow.  And instead of the usual “I purchased this at “WWW(BIG BIG ART STORE).COM”  the connection enriches the emotional value of your art piece.


The gallery is designed to connect the art seekers and collectors with artists directly. We offer artists a COMMISSION FREE / CONTRACT FREE online platform to sell their creations and engage with their clients using portfolio pages that are engaging with large images and a dramatic black background.

NO MIDDLEMAN is a boutique ART GALLERY; individuals browsing our archives and portfolio pages are relaxed, not pressured to sign up, agree with website terms, or maneuvering out of pop-up windows.

For details regarding participating in the NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY please contact Joelcy Kay the curator at
