Fine Art Prints - Artist's Statement
"Guided by light and line, and recognizing that a photograph is a reflection of a unique, fleeting reality, I strive to bring a quiet, contemplative energy to the frame. Additionally, by focusing on composition and tone — and limiting the use of processing techniques — a further objective is to establish and nurture an intimate affinity with the subject, one that communicates and celebrates the beauty, poignancy and oft-times ironic nature of our chaotic world. Through the art and perspective of photography I seek to bring both understanding and a fine balance to life – as I experience it."
At any given gathering, Birgit's over arching pursuit is to document mood and sentiment. While capturing the subtleties that suggest the preciousness of the moment, precision and perfection come second to gesture, spirit and flow.
Your requests might include smaller, intimate events or ceremonies and lifestyle, professional, engagement and maternity sessions.
Birgit is currently available for session and event photography in the area of Kimberley, British Columbia, located in the Kootenay Valley. She has lived along or close to the Rocky Mountains' spine of North America and in Vancouver, British Columbia.
