Impressions: Cape Cod
I have always found solace and a spiritual home in nature. During COVID, I began to really treasure the gift of natural beauty around me during my solo wanderings with camera.
I spend significant time on Cape Cod and particularly cherish the serenity and promise of the early morning light on its shores, ponds, forests and rivers. In this body of work, I utilized intentional camera movement (ICM) and the blending of multiple photos to create my personal vision of these landscapes– fleeting and fragile, peaceful and inviting.
Bonnie Newman is a photographer living in Lexington and Brewster, MA. She finds inspiration in nature, whether an expansive landscape or a detail that catches her eye. She sees abstraction everywhere and is attracted to shapes, transparency, distortion and fragmentation. Her recent landscape work utilizes the techniques of transparency and reflection, double exposure, and intentional camera movement to reveal her singular vision of a scene. The resulting images vacillate between serene and edgy, offering a flight from reality combined with a hint of mystery.
Newman’s photographs have been exhibited in a solo show at the Cary Public Library in Lexington MA. She has exhibited at The Griffin Museum of Photography and juried in to group exhibitions at the Cambridge Art Association, Arlington Center for the Arts, and Gallery Twist in Lexington.
She photographs for the Brewster Conservation Trust and the Town of Lexington Conservation Department. Her photos are on display at Brewster (MA) Town Hall, and the Lexington Visitor’s Center (MA).
Newman has taken photography courses with Emily Belz at the Arlington Center for the Arts, Griffin Museum of Photography, and the DeCordova Museum. (2015-2020). She participated in the Atelier 33 at the Griffin, has taken online workshops with Valda Bailey and Doug Chinnery, and workshops on Cape Cod with Steven Koppel and Julia Cumes.
