"Natural Impressions" by Angela Possemato
EXHIBIT TITLE: "Natural Impressions" - Creative nature images, some literal, some interpretations, that attempt to convey my experiences of being in nature, of the places and things that I find beautiful or interesting, be it an entire scene or a very small detail of it.
“As a musician I have been training my ears all my life to be sensitive to the beauty in our world through the color, texture, form and dynamics of music. Through photography I am developing my eye and I see color, texture, tone, and dynamics, in a whole new light. Photography offers me the opportunity to slow down, be present, and see beauty in things I might have otherwise missed. I enjoy nature, travel and landscape photography hoping to capture what is unique about the place and give the viewer a sense of being there."
In addition to being an avid photographer, Angela Possemato is a music educator recently retired from the Brighton Schools. She lives in Macedon with her husband, guitarist and composer Harvey Possemato. She also enjoys traveling, yoga, reading, cooking and biking.
