April 8- May 3
Vicki Lund, a Maine native, is a self taught photographer who focuses on the use of natural light and creative composition. Vicki is constantly challenging herself to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary, favoring the effects of “sweet morning light,” and the light of the late afternoon that she has dubbed “warm vanilla light.”
Vicki finds inspiration in the landscapes and surroundings close to home. She believes that if you immerse yourself in your own backyard, that new angles and perspectives can pleasantly surprise you to create something beautiful. Viewers of Vicki’s work frequently recognize the landscapes of Maine, but through the lens of fresh perspective, reinvigorate their outlook of what was once familiar.
Now retired after 35 years as a school bus driver, Vicki takes the time to shoot daily, and share her work on various websites. Feeling photography is a gift she has been blessed with, Vicki never leaves home without her camera. Vicki loves sharing her eclectic style and interests, shooting landscapes, seascapes and as volunteer photographer for her local fire rescue department.
Previously, Vicki’s work has been exhibited at Hair by Gregory’s, Auburn and The Green Ladle, Lewiston. Her first entrance into amateur photography yielded a First Place Prize for Judges Choice. Vicki and her award winning “Cornfield Sunset,” were featuring in the August 2012 issue of L/A Magazine. She has exhibited this work, and more, during Art Walk Lewiston Auburn. She was a featured artist in L/A Arts 2013 fundraiser, Arts and Crafts. Additionally, her work “Hacker’s Hill Sunset,” was commissioned as a marketing tool for the ongoing fundraising efforts of the Loon Echo Land Trust of Bridgton, and can be seen on the entrance sign to Hacker’s Hill in Casco.
