Kathryn DeZur is a photographer, poet, and professor who teaches English at the State University of New York at Delhi. Her photographs feature places and objects that point toward an existence or essence beyond our ordinary experiences of them by translating them into an aesthetic register. These photos look for clues to the transcendent within the material. Her photograph Ciaroscuro: Tulips won the second place People’s Choice Award at the CANO Member’s Art Exhibition. Her poetry chapbook, Blue Ghosts, was published by Finishing Line Press last year, and her poems have appeared in numerous journals and anthologies.
No one just takes up space. The human condition is an entire canvas of thoughts, emotions and reactions to circumstances. These images try to capture the truth about diverse people and how they live and reflect their respective spaces. The subjects never know they’ve been photographed. The photographer doesn’t set-up or pose any shot and never shoots with anything but available light.
