Digital Photography is my world. I believe that the photographs I will present in my exhibition will bring some joy and emotions but may also cause my viewers to reflect.

Ever since I was a little girl I have always been interested in art in one form or another. I do not consider myself a photographer, I consider myself an artist. My camera is my canvas and the light I use to capture each image is my paintbrush. I get great pleasure out of creating work that push my creative boundaries. To me anything is possible, all one needs is time and patience. Photography is a passion that has taken me to where I am in life now.

I did not find photography, photography found me. I find my inspiration in everything around me. My work is deeply personal and is not driven by any specific agenda, but is created and delivered from the heart. For me photography is about the concept, the reasoning behind the image is far more important than the aesthetic value.

All my work has a reason, whether to inform, make a statement, discuss or argue, it always seeks to promote a reaction.

My work says a lot about me, even though it may not be the best technically correct, but are we really attracted to perfect things? Look at some of the greatest photographers around. Our eyes are trained to see the imperfections, realistic views of beauty, while taking inspiration from inspiration itself.

If you are interested in purchasing any of my work, please e-mail me at: churico.peppers@yahoo.com or call me at: 413-527-6792.
