Dawn LeBlanc, Edmonton, Alberta Member Since June 2008 Artist Statement
A graphic designer by trade, Dawn is a semi-professional photographer whose images are held in private collections throughout North America and Europe. Her images have appeared in national publications, books, and newspapers. A latecomer to photography, Dawn began a journey with her camera that immediately engaged, captivated and consumed her. The photographs that have materialized reflect her admiration of nature as she looks at underlying forms, shapes and colour, seeking to strip away distracting detail and discover the play of light and shadow that can make the ordinary extraordinary. She hopes that in presenting things the way she does, others might also recognize and share in the simple solace and beauty of the natural world.
