Lehigh Valley artist, Yevette Hendler, uses photography as her art medium even though she doesn’t identify herself as a photographer while creating her art. Although she does strive for technically correct photographs, the artistic nature of her images is as important if not more so. As we are surrounded by so much chaos in our daily lives, it is important to stop for a moment, cease your work, and look around you. Hendler’s goal is and always has been to make the ordinary into something extraordinary.
What are Vignettes?
“This world is but a canvas to our imagination.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
The “canvas” to my imagination uses photography to show a very specific point of view. The resulting image is like a vignette based on it being “a short [subjective] scene that focuses on one moment or gives an [incisive] impression about a character, idea, setting, or object.” In these images, I don’t present the whole scene; place and time do not matter. Each image tells its own story, and the groupings have become vignettes themselves of ongoing or newly emerged series.
