My interest in photography spans many years and has evolved both in artistic scope and in the technical aspects of the craft. Most of the images you see here and on my personal website, louisekumpf.zenfolio.com, are from the more recent digital era, but there are also many processed anew from original negatives and transparencies. For the most part I now concentrate on natural objects and the flora of my immediate surroundings, especially the flowers, wild and cultivated. They endlessly fascinate me and give me endless inspiration.
Here are three favorite quotes that pretty well sum up my photography philosophy, motivation, and inspiration:
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever. . .
it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything - Aaron Sussman
Beauty is caught, it is not made - Sarah Blake
The camera makes everyone a tourist in other people's reality, and eventually in one's own - Susan Sontag .
