"Photographer of the month" for December

"My passion for capturing life around me may have started as a child in Germany, where I was first introduced to photography helping my father to proces his b%w family- and landscape photos. Foremost a painter, I have recorded life around me ever since, not only with my brushes, but also with various cameras while living in Montreal, Mexico City and Vancouver B.C. I now live and work in the Lake Chapala area… back in beautiful Mexico. Color, light, people, the fiestas, Mexico's architecture, forms and textures are what inspire me here so much. I have been photographing and processing digitally since the first Kodak DC 265 came out. Presently I am shooting with a Sony DSLR A100 camera, with only it's kit lens in my possession, so far.
As a visual artist I have exhibited my paintings in numerous solo- and collective shows in Germany, Canada, and in Mexico. I also have enjoyed a few photo publications, like book, magazine, and CD covers and am presently working towards a photography exhibition here at our Centro de la Cultura. As with painting, so with my photography, I capture what speaks to my heart, following the intuition of my soul.
Flickr has been a wonderful "classroom" for showing and learning… and for meeting people from all around this globe. I am honored be the Photographer of the Month. Thank you all for that!
Greetings, Ute
