About Lynne - LynneMassPhotography
12  Aug-Lynne

Lynne has always been fascinated with the creative process. Exploring the visual world with cameras for many years, her interest moved to another level when digital imaging replaced older SLRs. After retiring from 40 years in the teaching profession, she spends winters in Delray Beach, FL where she found classroom training in Fine Art Photography. These classes provided her with an avenue to develop her aesthetic sense. Lynne nurtures her "Art of Seeing" with the collaboration, encouragement  and inspiration of other exceptional photographers in the Delray Beach, Florida and southeastern Pennsylvania areas. She is committed to lifelong learning.


Lynne's thoughts about photography:

"Life is all about how one looks at things - photography is an exploration of life and an art of exploration. I am interested in how shapes and spaces interact and define each other, their relationships, the effect of light on them and the tension between them. I am interested in the story of people. In the words of the famed photographer Elliot Erwitt, 'It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. I found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.' Exploring the world through our vision and the magic of light reveals hidden relationships - at times there is peacefulness in the image, at other times a hard mystery. Occasionally, one finds both. I hope my photographs require the viewer to find an emotional connection to the image and to contemplate how and why we observe our world."



Lynne says: "When I venture out with my camera, I keep thinking; 'Find the light and you have a photograph.' "
