Kim Manley Ort, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario Canada Member Since September 2008 Artist Statement My passion for photography was ignited by a book on Ansel Adams and a trip to Yosemite National Park in California, followed by my first darkroom class at the Indianapolis Art Center.
Since then, I have photographed almost every day and have attended workshops in New Mexico and New Brunswick. Traveling in the United States, Canada and Europe gives me new vistas to explore.
I practice contemplative photography which helps me expand my awareness of and appreciation for this wonderful world we live in. Workshops (online and in-person) on visual design and contemplative photography are available through my website at www.kimmanleyort.com.
