Karen Scally Photography

As a photographer I seek to create images with strong, ethereal qualities as well as present them on multiple and rare types of mounts. In one dimension of my work I photograph the obvious, the natural, and the beautiful - land and sea as one takes in from the eye. Within that dimension I like to focus on specific details of a natural landscape and hone in on a particular element in which I can exaggerate a feature, such as the edges and color of a flower. On the other side of that approach, I also enjoy toying with the surreal that I can derive from those natural landscapes to create a somewhat whimsical image. This also allows me to play with the idea of the ironic; adding oceanic themes to a mid-western landscape, forming dream-like thoughts and feelings. Between these angles I create a multi-level experience of viewing every natural region I photograph.
