LG Garrigues, Oakland, CA Member Since August 2009 Artist Statement Lisa Gale Garrigues is a writer and photographer who investigates and celebrates the changing world around her with words and images. She specializes in travel and nature photography.
"I find writing and visual art to be absolutely complementary, in that they both ask us to pay attention.
My photography and digital imagery are efforts to see more deeply into the core of things, whether it be a mountain in Peru, the face of a child, or a green leaf growing out of a red fence on a city block in Los Angeles.
I am honored to be here at imagekind among such talented artists and photographers."
(A percentage of the proceeds from images of indigenous people of South America will return either to the individual photographed, their community, or a non-profit organization working on issues of concern to them.)
