Lately, I have been drawn to the light and shadow patterns around my kitchen sink, and well, me being me, I wanted to photograph what I was seeing. I accumulated enough images over the course of a couple of mornings that I thought it made sense to turn it into a little project. All of these pictures are taken in my kitchen sink or very close proximity to it. I used the Hipstamatic app camera for all of these pictures and edited them in the Vscocam app or in Lightroom with VSCO presets.
I suppose these photographs are my attempt to find beauty in the simple, mundane and ordinary, which is a great way to start the day. Lately, I’ve been turning to Foy Vance’s album, “Joy of Nothing” in the mornings, further fueling inspiration for these photographs.
About the artist:
Natalie’s primary goal as an artist is to evoke feeling through her words and photographs. Her artistic journey began long ago but it wasn’t until she entered her 30s that photography and writing became the primary outlet for her artistic expression. She likes to share the way she sees the world with those who are interested in her perspective. She is inspired by light, shadows, contrast, shapes, lines, colors, words, nature, adventure, music, and of course, the people, and animals she loves! She has recently been experimenting with self-portraiture and finding additional outlets for her art. While experimenting in different directions and following her passions as they arise, she is laying the groundwork for the future paths of her artistic journey. Her work has been published by Lensbaby, Beyond the Wanderlust, and she is an artist at Offset.com.
