Ashley Durrer Photography

Artist Statement

Photography opens up so many possibilities to life.  Things people take for granted become my subjects.  The backyard I ignored became a place of exploration. It is a place among many; I take my camera and capture every interesting moment.  Over the course of five years I have taken more than one thousand pictures per year.  Each image is an experience that allows me to understand why I live.  Yes, my family was separated, but we are still a family.  Yes, I lost many friends when I moved, but I have made new friends.  I have realized just because things are lost, doesn’t mean they can’t be found again in other forms.  Something lost can be found in something just around the corner, or under a tree in the rain, very unexpectedly. Through photography I have discovered a beauty fused with movement I once created with dance.
