Artist Statement

My work as a photographer explores the way I see and feel the world. I do not merely want to capture an image; I look to find beauty in serendipitous moments through light, form, and line. I am passionate about photography because it allows me a tool through which I can freely and easily move outside traditional art forms to explore my world. Through my images I seek to cultivate or spark a visceral sensation of heightened awareness.
  Member Profile:

Ann von Pentz, originally from Indiana, lived in Washington, DC for thirty years where she pursued a career in International Trade and raised her family. She left the East Coast in 2015 and is now based in Bozeman, Montana and Scottsdale, Arizona.

Always inspired by creative endeavors, she picked up a camera about ten years ago and began seriously exploring her world in new ways. Initially intrigued by the forms and lines of the macro world, she focused her eye primarily on field flora and flowers. Since moving to Montana and Arizona, Ann's focus has shifted to include landscapes, wildlife and cityscapes.

Ann's style is often described as ethereal and creative. She is known for finding hidden beauty in often overlooked subjects and scenes. Reflected in her images is her ability to connect with her subject's character, humor, mood and life-force. Ann is often found hiking trails or forging her own, in pursuit of the unknown. Her love for exploration and adventure is apparent in her most recent works.

While living in DC, Ann mentored under Eliot Cohen, a fixture in the DC photography scene. Since leaving the East Coast she has continued her work with the professional photography world and attends local and international workshops. She is a member of the Sonoran Art League, the Desert Light Photo Group and the F11 Photo Group in Bozeman, Montana. Her work is currently showing in the El Pedregal Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona.
