I’m very excited to announce a showing of my photographs at the Ballard Works artists’ work spaces, 2856 NW Market Street in Seattle from November 9 through December 6th. I will be showing 26 of my photographs which will be displayed on the second floor hall gallery. The theme of my work is capturing images of our ever changing world and the beauty that surrounds us. I will be at the opening at Ballard Works on November 9th from 6:00 - 9:00 during the Ballard Art Walk. I would love you to come by and say hello, or come anytime by appointment during the month to view them. Hope to see you there!
I am inspired by broad expansions of light and color, beauty in nature, and the landscapes that surround me. I look for capturing the ‘beautiful impermanence and rustic decay’ symbolized in the Japanese phrase 'wabi-sabi.’ I am interested in photographing the decay of iconographic imagery of my lifetime: pioneer cemeteries, antiquated trucks, drive-in movie remains, deteriorating barns, movie theater marquees, vanishing telephone booths. I have recently begun photographing urban environments, commercial window reflections, fire hydrants and urban life.
I have been photographing for over 30 years, some of those years more concentrated than others. I started with film in the darkroom with black and white images, focusing solely on tonality and controlling light. Now, in the digital age my focus remains the same.
If you are interested in owning giclee prints or cards of these images, please contact me at email@example.com for more information. Thanks for looking, Suzanne Lorenz
