Susan Lappin – Photographic Artist Art Show and Sale
September 13, 2018
From the artist:
“Since my retirement from the banking sector I have embraced my life-time passion for photography. My fascination for photography began in the late nineteen-fifties when my father introduced me to preserving the greatness of Toronto train yards from within his darkroom. Along with preserving these days and the legacy of his love for the huge engines of steel, I am also capturing my passions in nature and the uniqueness of things whose time is too quickly passing. I believe it is so very important for us to take a moment in time and appreciate everything around us.
When we look at something are we really seeing? Are we are using our whole being, our senses, our minds and our emotions? Can we let go of our past; go beyond the labels society puts on things; relax and stop, so that we can truly ‘see ‘.
The difference between looking and seeing is in how involved you are in the action. You look at a flower that has been named a tulip or a rose, but can you go beyond that and feel the colour, the softness, strength and/or gentleness. Don’t let life in the world around you go by without being involved in it. Stop and see!”
