Judith Montminy

FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY

In both natural and man-made settings, my attention is drawn to juxtaposed triangles, diagonals and parallel lines. Their rhythmic interplay compels me to consider architecture and other deliberately constructed environments as subjects for fine art photography.

To capture a setting's abstract and graphic underpinnings, I pay close attention to its shapes and patterns – angles, curves and shadows exposed by the dynamic interaction between light, color, reflections and texture.

My goal is to provoke curiosity about the hidden-in-plain-sight geometrics that surround our daily lives.
