About Fran

 

"Fran Saunders"

© 2009 Norm Saunders

There are two things in art that move me: those that touch my heart and those that excite my senses.  I am, therefore, drawn to images that show emotions and those that make me feel as if I’ve been touched.    On the one hand, I love to photograph human and animal expressions that reveal something about the way the subjects are feeling or thinking.  On the other, my images tend toward texture shots, those that show detail, surface patterns and depth.

It has taken me a long time to discover these inclinations.  Long ago, a psychology professor said I was a “touchy-feely” type person and surrounded myself with the sensations of different textures.   She thought that because I was severely hearing-impaired, my other senses, particularly my eyes and sense of touch were more meaningful to me.  Then, a couple of years ago, a visitor to my very first solo exhibition said, “It is true to say that you see beauty in simple things?”  And more recently, a fellow artist remarked on how she loved the detail in my images.  They say you should listen to your viewers, and how true that seems to me know.  After heading in a trillion different directions with my art, I am now settling into my personal style and hope to be doing more of this type of work in the future.

In my blog, I will share some of things I have learned during this journey, be they technical photographic elements or pieces of soul.  If you are at all interested in photography, you will want to come back often and check the latest.  I may not always amuse you, but I promise you will always learn something.
