Featured Artist Friday - Anisha Palmer Photography

I had the pleasure of attending a gallery opening for today's Featured Artist Anisha Palmer at a local restaurant this week. Anisha is a Boston-based food and nature photographer who's love of photography began when her father gave her his old Canon camera. She's been hooked ever since and has developed a passion for capturing "seemingly ordinary moments in nature in unique ways."  It was great to meet Anisha and see her photography, I always love meeting new artists, especially when they are so passionate about what they photograph or paint or sculpt as Anisha is. This gallery opening featured part of Anisha's Farm series, with very clear and crisp photographs that capture the amazing colors, lines, and organic shapes of the world's fruits and vegetables. Anisha said that she loves the colors of nature and how vibrant they are, especially when they are farm stand fresh and haven't been shipped or packaged for the grocery store aisles. Anisha's Farm series will be on exhibit and for sale at 15 Walnut in Hamilton until December 11th, so if you're in the area be sure to check it out. Also, to find out more about Anisha, learn about past and upcoming shows, and see more of her work visit her website here. Anisha also has several great quotes on her website as inspiration. Here's my favorite:

"A mind, stretched by a new experience, can never go back to its old dimensions."
