Angela Yates, Bryn Mawr Member Since September 2009 Artist Statement I'm an artist who makes a living as a scientist. I enjoy just about every medium I get my hands on. I suppose that's what most people with a BFA would say, but it's so true. Although, I've always had a soft spot for photography. I suppose that's why I am finally losing track of how many cameras I own. I love the wonders of mother nature and am constantly trying to capture it how ever I can. There is so much beauty in the little details of life that so many people pass by without ever noticing. I'm that person who constantly has to say "Stop! I'll just be a minute, I have to have this photo." I'm also that person who gets reprimanded at art galleries for getting too close to the artwork. I just want to see the texture. Is that a crime? So the time has come to try out macro photography. It seems it was a natural progression. Long overdue.
