Panduté - Realist, Abstractionist, and Creative Macro Maniac by Ausra Huntington
This exhibit of macro-photography will be in the Centre Gallery, East.
"Panduté is a Lithuanian word meaning “a little panda”. It’s the nickname I chose to represent me as a photographer and supporter of pets and wild animals after losing my beloved Panduté, a fluffy cute pandalike cat. This collection of photos is meant to introduce Panduté Photography and benefit Pandas International as part of my annual commitment to donate 5% of my income from photography to this wonderful organization that is helping to save pandas from extinction.
I consider myself a realist because I enjoy walking outdoors, absorbing all the beauty the world has to offer and feel the best when I get the great picture straight out of the camera, without having to spend hours at the computer for postprocessing. Digital photography gives more freedom, but I still tend to make each click count, just like I used to work with the film.
At the same time, when I look at things around me, I notice unexpected side of ordinary. I love to capture the reality in a creative way that makes things look almost abstract, inspires curiosity, boosts viewer’s imagination or tells a story, which may exist only in the viewer’s mind. I believe this is the type of wall art that can enrich any space both private and public.
And finally, while in a constant hunt for those surreal views, I became a close up/ macro maniac obsessed with the never-ending search of the perfect image of abstract macro reality and a point of view that makes you wonder.
