Life changes sometimes every minute or in the blink of an eye. Time passes quickly as we idly count the sunrise and sunsets. An important thing to remember is; we are never too old, dumb or stuck to reinvent ourselves, grow and change, even if the location stays the same. This journey in images represents just that; a Life Change brought about by turbulent weather in relationships, unhealthy life patterns and the progressive uphill climb to new life and experiences yet to be uncovered. May we always find life’s changes and challenges inspiring, creative and ever inventive as we strive to experience every day to its fullest potential. Yours in Light; Julie A. Zagorski
Essence of Light
This series communicates the spirituality and connection to nature developed over a lifetime of energy, emotions and experiences projected visually. Representing myself and character. Primarily displaying my inert passion of photography and all forms in the study of light. I found each project emotionally challenging to creatively communicate the energy inside myself that drives me creatively. Through the study of other fine art photographers; both historic and contemporary, I found my interests and approach most inspired by fine art photographers like Connie Imboden. My style has evolved to encompass reflection and the obscure properties of water. It seems to be an integral part of my work and character. In this series, I’ve discovered the light paintings by themselves also portray my character with spirituality, motion and rhythm. The special finishing treatments of layering and masking provided the double exposure effects of the light painting and nature scenes, but each image I am proud to say is created exclusively in camera with minimal retouching.
