Laurie McPherson, Karenia Niedzwiecki and Elaine O’Keeffe are three women who share common roots and a passion for visual imagery. Perspectives is a collection of fine art photography that reflects their unique view of their varied surroundings. The show and sale includes images ranging from locations in southwestern Manitoba and western Canada to as far away as Australia, Belgium, France, Italy and New Zealand.
Laurie (Delorme) McPherson
Laurie grew up near St. Alphonse and treasures her ties to the beautiful rolling countryside in the area. Laurie has always been drawn to the visual element of life, both the subtle and dramatic, and finds being able to capture and evoke emotion in a photographic image truly gratifying. Laurie would like to dedicate this exhibit to her parents Ernie and Imelda Delorme in thanks for their loving example of always appreciating the simple beauty in nature and life. Laurie enjoys the social aspect of being a photography enthusiast and is a member of the Winnipeg South Photo Club.
Karenia (Delichte) Niedzwiecki
Karenia is trained as a graphic designer and focuses on a variety of creative outlets, including photography, design and illustration. She grew up on a farm near St. Alphonse, but moved to Winnipeg for high school and has lived in the city ever since. As a result, Karenia has a love for wandering through wide-open spaces, hiking through trees and wading through rivers. But at the same time, she appreciates the vibrancy and creative energy that cities have to offer. Karenia is member of the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada (GDC), and volunteers for the Manitoba Chapter to plan PechaKucha Night Winnipeg.
Elaine (Delichte) O’Keeffe
As Elaine explores near her home in Winnipeg, Manitoba or while travelling abroad, she is inspired by the beauty that surrounds her. She aims to capture those special moments, whether it is in the scenery that surrounds her, the people within it, or hidden treasures. Her goal is to capture the inner character and vibrancy of whatever she is photographing so that others may see it too. Elaine is a member of the Winnipeg South Photo Club and served as President for the 2012-13 year. View Elaine’s website.
