Artist Statement

Photography allows me to capture a fleeting moment of nature’s beauty and splendour.
 
 I believe that geography grounds us to this place and I like to define that grounding in my  photographs.
 
 My landscape photographs are a representation of what I have seen and love about the 
 La Cloche/Manitoulin geography. 
 
 The natural light of sunrise, sunset or a mellow lit landscape has an intensity that requires no  embellishment from a computer enhancement program.  I return often to the same location  with a tripod and wait. I spend the time to be present for the moment that reveals what is  special about the colour, shape and essence of the landscape in this part of Northern Ontario.
 
 I use a Nikon D80 digital camera. My prints are Kodak Endura mounted photographs and each  one has an acid-free mat and is custom framed.

Biography

For over 30 years, Kerry has enjoyed taking travel and nature photography. While her children were growing up, the content turned to family milestones and experiences. Photographing the landscape of northern Ontario continues to inspire her.
 
Year round hiking and exploring in the quartzite ridges of the La Cloche Mountains have provided ample opportunity for Kerry to experience and photograph her northern landscape.
 
Kerry enjoys using photography to capture the beauty and mood of a setting.  “I feel I am drawn to capture a view and/or experience through photography. The present moment is not to be hung on to, yet a photograph allows me to celebrate it.  Photography allows me to share the special moments of my life in La Cloche Country.”
 
Her photographs have been selected for juried shows in Sudbury, Manitoulin and La Cloche.
 
Kerry lives in the village of Willisville with her husband, Jon, and her

 

La Cloche mountain dog, Andy.
