Can you guess what this is? Hint: University of Illinois alums know that she’ll be gone soon, and won’t be back for a year.
As many of you know, I’ve spent much of the last year photographing and organizing images for a special project with the Champaign-Urbana Symphony. This image did NOT get used, but it’s one of my favorites. I’ve always looked for detail in the world around me, but this past year, I’ve combined THAT with a fascination with color….and the element of surprise. I LOVE taking things I see everyday, and putting a twist on them. I LOVE making them colorful and unique, challenging the viewer to think about their source. And yes, after years of being stuck in a rut, I LOVE the freedom I have to work on projects that make my soul soar!
