Join us at Valley Arts Festival Gallery, 6:30 on Wednesday, January 9th for a stimulating evening with Amalia Verali. Hear her talk about her photographs and share her thoughts on capturing Macro Photography.
A native New Yorker, Amalia has called Vermont her home for more than 40 years. Her photographic journey includes study at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, the University of Vermont, as well as numerous workshops and private study. Amalia began her exploration in photography while on a trip to Europe working for a student travel organization. Originally she focused on black and white photography and printmaking in her darkroom. After many years as a successful potter and photographer working with black and white photography, she turned her creative energies to the art of color photography.
“I photograph my subjects from nature; focusing on one part of a flower, a leaf, or an ice crystal. This focus allows me to explore the complexity, depth, and color of the form I am photographing”. Amalia has the ability to see and capture images of flowers and other natural forms in an intuitive way that reveals an inner, almost otherworldly dimension in her final prints. Her floral prints have been compared to the paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe
