Archived: Flight of Fancy by Marian Hesse

Biography: Photography: An appreciation of visual arts doesn’t make one an artist. As a long-time ‘snapshot taker, I have discovered that abstract photography is absorbing to me.  Planning the photo and finding surprises during the editing keeps me returning to the art form.  I also enjoy taking photos that can, after editing, look like paintings from earlier times. I love shadowy lighting and muted backgrounds and I enjoy creating something that reflects the 18th century, but with a modern twist.
