Description when we hiked the inca trail to see machu picchu, it was overwhelming to take in... and to imagine the labor involved in toting, cutting and fitting the tons of stones... that still stand securely today.
Liz Stubbs, Atlanta Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement as a photographer and filmmaker, i enjoy capturing slices of life... those unguarded moments when people's masks are down and we respond and connect to their more naked expression. when i'm shooting i feel keenly present, and i love finding and framing candids of people engrossed in their own life without being aware of my lens. traveling particularly gets my juices flowing as i seem to see with fresh eyes. i shoot to capture the feeling and the experience... to bring home moments as much as vistas. the exciting shots for me creatively are when i am able to see magic in the mundane or beauty in the muck. overall, i am drawn to photography as a viewer and as a shooter because of the journey it takes us on... beyond our everyday worlds as well as within ourselves.
