Sherry Prenevost: In Black & White
"I have been privileged to bear witness to many remote wondrous places on earth. Through the art of photography, I strive to capture and share these experiences to raise awareness about the interconnectedness of our world and the commonalities of our humanity.
I use my lens to bring forth the inspirational possibilities of a landscape, and the landscape of possibilities in the faces and places of others.
In Black and White brings together many of my experiences from faraway places. These moments challenged my realities, moved my heart and informed the footsteps I now take."
