Elizabeth Saucier

From a World Seen to a World Created

May-June, 2015

Artist: Elizabeth Saucier
Artist: Elizabeth Saucier

My art is about imagination, a sense of adventure, no fear of breaking the rules and an intensely personal and fascinating journey.

As a self-taught freelance photographer, I specialize in creating images of nature. With the use a DSLR, an iPhone, an iPad and post processing applications, including the digital darkroom and fine art techniques, I take the interplay with my subjects and creativity beyond the lens. The result transports the image from a world seen to a world created.
