The earth is art, the photographer is only a witness.

My photography and art is inspired by the day-to-day beauty that surrounds me. I take note of the details in my environment that often go unnoticed or are simply taken for granted. I appreciate life - people, places, things, experiences - and enjoy documenting every inch of my world with my camera. Throughout my work, I look to evoke emotion, prompt questions, and deliver alternate perspectives. 

There are two types of work that I am most passionate about. The first being self-portraiture, which is a type of therapy that allows me to document the ebb and flow, the ups and downs, of my personal journey. The second, is documenting animals and nature. Being in nature is being at home; the sound of the sea, the singing of birds, the rustling of trees, the warmth of the sun, the freshness of the air and the rich soil beneath my feet. Nothing can compare to the healing energy from the earth. My photographs are not only of what I see; but an attempt to illustrate the euphoria attained from being within my spiritual element. 

I currently sell signed limited edition prints as well as other prints in my ON-LINE STORE. If you are interested in any of the work on this website, the 'Fenton Art & Foto' page on FACEBOOK, or my work on FLICKR or INSTAGRAM... feel free to contact me anytime.  

With Love,

Kirsten
