Starting with Little Things

Love the earth like a mole,
fur-near. Nearsighted,
hold close the clods,
their fine-print headlines.
Pat them with soft hands --

Like spades, but pink and loving; they
break rock, nudge giants aside,
affable plow.
Fields are to touch;
each day nuzzle your way.

Tomorrow the world.

About the Photographer

Karen Waters

Artist Statement

What do I find so interesting about photographing things like concrete, tree bark or scratched metal? Texture.  Plain and simple...I love texture!  Layering these types of images over traditional photographs creates depth and emotion, which brings them to life and tells their story in a more meaningful way.

I refer to my work as Photographic Art because it reaches beyond traditional photography and allows me more creativity to convey a true 'beingness' that the lens alone doesn't often capture.  Through these images, I hope to remind the viewer that we are part of a wonderful world full of magnificence.

I am a member of the Santa Fe Society of Artists and show my work with the group most weekends, just off the Santa Fe Plaza from the end of April through mid-October. If you're ever in Santa Fe, stop by and say hello!
