Aboriginal Based Photographs – by Erin FitzGibbon
Artist Statement:I am an artist of Irish, Algonquin and French descent. Themes of beauty and perfection in existence permeate all facets of my work. The camera leads me to unexpected places in search of these elements. My inspiration is often quite spontaneous. Many times ideas hit me like a truck, and I have to scramble to find my camera before the moment is gone. The result is a collection of images that vary greatly in subject matter and quite often style.
Some people have pushed me to choose a subject matter or a style for my photography, to be known for a “type” of photography. My “type” is beautiful and varied. I make no apologies for being “all over the place”. I hold onto a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson. He said, “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”

Loving the Land – Photography Group Show
Loving the Land is a photography show about the big picture we often see, but also the smaller views within this incredible planet. Views of frost covered windows, reflective pools, shadowy paths, trees and close-ups of plants and wild life. I am struck by the wonderful textures captured by these amazing photographers. Their expert eyes and camera are caressing the land, capturing but not harming what they see – reveling in the gifts that are around us.
We hope this show inspires you to take the time to notice the large and small details around you and encourages you to love this land in creative, nurturing ways.
