A solo exhibition by Michele Vair

"My work leans towards fine art and street photography, documenting anything from what simply captures my attention, or, prompts me to think or feel in a particular way. I look at people, places and things with various levels of curiosity, feeling what is already there, or searching for what it is that has drawn me in, but I've yet to discover. I love texture, shadows and light. I’m drawn to figures, faces, old buildings and places that make me feel as if I’m the only one there. Sometimes, it is an actual moment I’m compelled to capture because it provokes an emotion that resonates within me.

I have found through photogravure, I can create images that take on a different sort of beauty with dreamlike and storytelling qualities. They somehow feel more intimate." — Michele Vair
