Spring 2009

Debbie Delatour was selected as the Spring, 2009 Artist in Residence.

Debbie specializes in macro photography, and derives her inspiration from wildflowers and tideline treasures.

In her own words
For me, photography is not so much a capturing of an image but more a sharing of an experience, a feeling, a moment in time. I am often reminded, especially during this time of great change, how fleeting these moments can be. Several of these pictures were taken a moment before I had to jump back from a wave and watch my subject be washed out to sea.
