Description This close-up of an abalone shell looks as if it could be a photograph from outer space, looking down on some portion of the Earth. This photograph was taken with a magnifying lens, so it is sharp in the center and slightly blurry along the edges. The colors and textures in this shell are truly magnificent.
Amy Blount Achor, Yellow Springs, Ohio Member Since April 2011 Artist Statement "Look closely now, it will be clear;
Things are not as they first appear."
The images you'll see in my galleries are photographs of the natural world presented in an "other worldly" way. The inspiration for these images came to me one night after a powerful emotional experience. "Vision Quest" means "to seek spiritual power through exceptional vision." This has been my goal with this work; it is as much about "inner vision" as outer vision.
If you are in the Yellow Springs, Ohio area, please stop by Village Artisans, 100 Corry Street, Yellow Springs, to see much more of my work, including cards, magnets, miniatures, matted work, and additional wall art. I have many humorous and inspirational cards with words that are not shown on this site.
I will be happy to custom-make note cards of any rectangular images shown on this site. The cards are 4x6 images printed on glossy photographic paper and adhered to 5x7 white textured cardstock with a deckled edge. If you'd like information on the cards, or don't see what you're looking for on this site, please email me at WildWomanPhotos@aol.com. Your comments are always welcome! With best wishes, Amy Blount Achor (last name pronounced "acre," as in "an acre of land."). E-mail: WildWomanPhotos@aol.com.
