Artist Statement:

                                        – Kira Seamon

_____________

 

Kira Seamon has a particular interest in reflections, shadows, color and the play of light. Regarding her experimental kaleidoscope photography, she can wait hours for the wind to die down and the sun to come back out to allow her fall foliage shots the best possible conditions. If she can’t get the conditions on the first try, she will return to the same tree the next day, an infinitum, until she gets the perfect shot (or the leaves fall off the tree – whichever comes first!).
