Photography

Angles of light, shadows and reflections found me in a separate dimension of observation in the studio at Vivenda Santa Iria, in Penedo, an ancient village in Portugal. This light has revealed itself in my work repeatedly over years of visits. Tangible and rich in its presence, it clarifies the vision of a human sprit that the larger consumerist world can obscure. In this project, I seek the sense of sanctuary rising from the calçada-paved lanes, rough shadowed whitewashed walls, quiet people moving through light.

  1. Kathleen. you know how much I love your photography! Each one of these photos is other-worldly! I always feel, when I view them, that I have walked through a door into a different surreal, beautiful, peaceful reality…Dream-like, but at the same time, real…they train the eye to look for magic in our ordinary surroundings, and just because something is ordinary, we must r3emember to look at it again and see what it really is. These photos train the mind and eye to see…really see.

    Thanks so much.
