Spotlight: Diane Hughes

Hi There . . .

Diane Hughes and I go way back . .  11 years I think.  Diane photographed my wedding.  I recently went by her place for a new headshot and to take a look at some new things she was doing- it was a fun afternoon . . 

She has such a thoughtful eye and creative nature.   She creates mixed media photography that reflects her passion for nature.  The physical power and symbolic wisdom of "Trees" have become an enduring source of inspiration in her photographic work.  She is drawn to the strength, rawness, textures, shape and human-like depth of older trees.  She uses the core image in black and white and then obscures the image with organic materials such as tea, dirt, raw vegetable juice and oils and vinegars with the goal of creating colors and textures.  She aims to explore new materials and modes of creating texture.  Her portraits, are uniquely captivating, expressive and revealing.  

Recently we got together to take a few new head shots.   I love this image she managed to capture !
