Stefanie Herzer: ARTIST STATEMENT
Take Time to Appreciate
In our ever-growing man-made world I find it increasingly important to stay connected with a more natural state of being. The greatest gift that my photography has given me is that I am able to see again and not only to see but also to truly appreciate. Instead of running from one location to the next I find myself spending more time in a single spot. Often I spend many hours in one location just to capture that brief moment were the beauty is so overwhelming
that in can touch our hearts. The reason is not so much the pursuit of the photograph. It is more like a magical discovery where the more I am able to connect the morning fulfilled I feel. In showing the roundness, completeness and beauty of our natural environment, I hope to remind viewer on these roots.
In 2010 and 2011 I was Community Partner for National Geographics Grand Canyon Visitor Center:
