January Cold Keeps Us Motivated

Good morning readers! It’s bright and early on this Thursday morning, still bitterly cold outside as the sun slowly comes to cover us all with its sheer warmth.  As the second full week of January comes to a close, I find myself going and going like the energizer bunny.  My theory?  I’m just trying to keep warm.

Things are moving along with CAFA, and at CCSU we are on the brink of another exhibition opening a week from today.  But I don’t want to write about that (yet…I will just not now).

Today I wanted to write about fine art photography artist Cynthia Matty-Huber.  She was awarded the 1st place in our Online Photo Exhibition for her image “John Hoiland in his Livingroom” which you can see in my recent post New Year = New Possibilities.

Matty-Huber, a Montana-based photographer, has a grasp on the harsh reality that is the rancher’s life and the everyday hard chores that make up their  livelihood.  Somehow she has been able to capture the strong hardship, the years of hard labor in a quick, in a snap of the camera.

The following was Matty-Huber’s second entry into CAFAs competition, which is another beautiful depiction of the american rancher in the rugged north-western landscape.

Every distinguished wrinkle line on his face that contrasts against the lighting really seems to bring the viewer’s focus to his deep complex expression.

Photographer Matty-Huber has a great body of work, please check out her full portfolio here, you won’t be disappointed.
