We are thrilled to have Lynne’s art displayed- it is such a nice addition to City Hall. Feel free to stop by during business hours to view these beautiful pieces!
From Lynne Campbell:
“My love of photography began in childhood – I remember paging with wonder through editions of National Geographic. Finally, at twenty, I took my first photographs overseas using an old Leica lovingly given to me by my father.
Life intervened. But not long after leaving an unsatisfying career in advertising, I was invited to caretake a remote property on Kootenay Lake in British Columbia. The year was 2007. I purchased my first digital camera on my trip north, and I haven’t looked back.
My work is the culmination of learning from reading, taking a few classes, and the invaluable experience gleaned from taking thousands of photographs. I am drawn to the natural world –
its colors, textures, patterns, visual beauty – and am especially fond of photographs that appear as paintings.
As a big-picture person – and with the world becoming smaller and more accessible daily – I have a keen sense of the dark side of life on this planet. Yet, with camera in hand, my eye is drawn to what around us is beautiful, whimsical, exquisitely rendered.
For me, experiencing the world through the photographic process is both meditation and renewal.”
