Beverly Gallagher Member Since November 2011 Artist Statement When people ask about my future plans, I’ve been known to quip, “I don’t even know what I’m having for dinner tonight.” I believe that spontaneity enables one to enjoy life in the now. When it comes to taking photographs, I apply the same philosophy.
I carry a digital camera small enough to fit into my pant pocket. I don’t take a lot of photographs, and I rarely spend time trying to achieve just the right composition. When I spot something that catches my eye, I pull out my camera and shoot. This allows me to capture one of life’s moments while still remaining a participant. Just like the surprises spontaneity grants, candid photography allows me to portray something outside of the anticipated.
