Special Guest Artist
Joanne L. Orichella is a photographer living in Newbury, Ohio. She photographs a variety of subjects such as water lilies, landscapes, textures and flea market items.
“Photography was always my passion. I cannot remember when I didn’t always carry a camera with me. My photographs are also my biography of the people who I have met, places that traveled to, and where I lived, besides my soul and heart.
I can after all these years, close my eyes and still remember my Dad’s darkroom and the smell of the photographic developing chemicals. It was like magic for me as a young child when the negatives that he developed turned into black and white prints. I was hooked into the gift of photography from my father.
Photography has enriched my soul in seeing the overt and hidden beauty around me of the people, places and the world that we all share or encounter. To take photos is to see with your heart. When we cultivate the “eyes of the heart”, we find more to photograph.
My aim as a photographer is about seeing, capturing and sharing the most mundane details that people may overlook and turning them into the extraordinary and full of feeling. A cardboard box of bolts and nuts at a flea market may be overlooked by the casual browser as commonplace. However, I see interesting juxtapositions of shapes, lines, colors and textures in them that demands to be photographed. As a contemplative photographer, I seek to offer the vision of the graced ordinary subject or moment. I hope you will enjoy the moments and subjects that I have captured.”
