Hi, I’m Ingrid!

A life of words, pictures and entertaining.

In 2011, unusual circumstances found me in Italy as a photo novice with a new camera (my first), hanging out with art history and photography graduate students from Texas A&M. I had a M.A. in Art which was abandoned for 40 years in favor of building a career. Throughout that time I observed my surroundings and developed an obsession with nuance. Five weeks in Florence, revealed my new voice very quickly through photography. I learned the term for what I shot was called “Street Photography.” The images I frame are stumbled upon, sometimes with objects appearing in precise arrangements as if waiting to be noticed. If the subject is posing, it’s for another lens, unaware of my presence. The compositions are simple, with a photojournalistic attitude as if revealing a snippet of information and begging the viewer to finish the story.
