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."

Souls and Ceremony Photography

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 - gesture, spirit and flow become her focus. 

Birgit has lived her adult life along or close to the Rocky Mountains' spine of North America or  in Vancouver, British Columbia.  She is currently booking session and event photography in the area of Taos, Northern New Mexico.
