Judith Montminy

Provocative architectural scenes continue to command my attention and compel me to photograph their soothing abstract and geometric qualities.

Recently, however, I’ve begun to look beyond the obvious characteristics of these strong graphic settings and have started to embrace their ambiguous hints at story snippets caught midstream. To expose their emotional core, I embrace diffused light, shadows and color along with the apparitional figures they help to shape.
