Green Door Gallery will host local photographer Ann Fuller for the September 4th Friday Art Walk. The opening reception is September 23rd from 5 pm – 8 pm. The show is named for her recently published book of photography with the same title, “See For Yourself.” Come to see her framed photographs, get a signed copy of the book and talk with the artist.
“In 2018, Chickechick, an Araucona chicken, was mauled by a dog that came into my yard. Severely wounded and near death, I brought her into my house where I attended to her every need. She lived in my sunroom for four months. During this time I felt her vulnerability become trust as she recovered. A deep bond developed between us that expanded my heart – – love does heal.
The ordeal of saving her life, caring for her wounds, and watching her go from being unable to move, to standing, walking, and eventually laying an egg, changed something in me. My eyes and heart were opened to the profound mystery that lies beyond a perceived experience.
As a result, I was able to view my 35 years of photography in a whole new way. I saw that through vulnerability, trust, and inner guidance, I had captured the profound mystery of connection between each person and the setting in which I placed them. The symbiotic relationships in each photo create a mythical playground for infinite interpretation – – beyond a personal experience.” – Ann Fuller
