Kathy Strauss had this to say about her show: “In this age, each person has their own definition of what is Spirit. I have taken photographs that cross all genres. I have put together the show with the intention of stimulating conversations and encouraging people to ask themselves what Spirit means to them.
“Spirit is not just a religious connotation, it could be the energy of a person or the feeling of a particular scene. I’m a visual person and always see the bigger picture. Through my photography I explore shape, pattern, and emotion. My sense of wonder and belief of knowing that we are all connected – my aim is to share that from the hand of man – to the simplicity of nature, the reflection of Spirit lies in each of us and our surroundings.”
