FEATURED ARTIST - FEBRUARY

Stephanie Brand Photography

 

Visions of My World

 

For as long as I can remember, I have been taking photographs. Since retiring from a busy law practice, I’ve had the opportunity to travel extensively, and I have focused on creating images that are true to the spirit of the places I’ve visited.

 

Primarily self-taught, I have also studied at the International Center of Photography in New York and participated in photographic workshops with some of today’s most respected photographers.

 

My love of wildlife and of the people I meet when I travel have long captivated me.  I hope my images bring you to a place that evokes realism and a touch of mystery. I am successful when you have a sense of having shared my experience, but also a yearning to know more about each subject of a photograph.

 

Since moving to Arizona, my work has been published in Arizona Highways magazine and now is shown in Sedona at the Village Gallery and at the Artist Market, and in Cottonwood at Hart of Arizona Art Gallery. I have shown at and won awards at juried shows at Sedona Art Center in both the “Emerging” and “Professional” artist categories.  My images have also been shown in Arizona in juried shows at the Herberger Theater Art Center in Phoenix, and at the Phippen Museum in Prescott.

 

New York exhibits include the Nature and Wildlife Photographers of Long Island at Phoenix Gallery, Bellport, NY; the 5th Annual Photography Competition at fotofoto gallery, Huntington, NY and the Long Island Center of Photography at The African-American Museum, Hempstead, NY.

 

My work is in private collections throughout the USA as well as in Europe, Asia and Africa.
