David Kocherhans, Utah Member Since March 2009 Artist Statement My passion for photography comes from a powerful affinity and affection for the beauty of the natural world. I am continually amazed by nature’s unique ability to transform in a way that ordinary things can suddenly become extraordinary for a few moments with the infusion of a particular lighting, a droplet of water, a passing storm, a temperature extreme, a rising or setting sun, a change of the seasons, and the like. Even the most ordinary and mundane subjects in the natural world have a moment when there is some extraordinary beauty, and I love searching out and discovering those moments. Many of the subjects of my photos are not remarkable or majestic -- they are not the kind of thing you would stop the car for. They are often isolations of some ordinary subject in a remarkable moment of beauty.
To me, experiencing the natural beauties of this world is both spiritually healing and mentally rejuvenating. I hope you find similar inspiration through my work.
