A walk along Swift River on Father’s Day 2016
One of the things I enjoy most is traveling through remote areas with my husband and sons. I get great joy from planning unique family vacations to beautiful places on a shoestring. These trips give me a chance to detach from routine and explore new worlds with my camera.
I love living in New England because there are so many beautiful places to visit that are within a short drive from our home in Bedford MA. My husband recently took up fly fishing and I accompanied him on one of his expeditions to the Swift River in Western Massachusetts. The Swift River flows out of the Quabbin Reservoir which provides water to Eastern Massachusetts. The river is “gin clear” and peaceful.
While my husband was fishing I walked along the banks of the river and was stunned by how I could clearly see brook and rainbow trout as they swam by.
Kay Corry Aubrey has lived in New England most of her life. She uses photography as a way to explore and express her experience with everyday life. Aubrey photographs a wide range of subjects from people to objects and landscapes. The common thread that runs throughout her work is a desire to show the unique beauty and truth of a particular moment in time, using light and focus to convey a distinct mood in a composition.
Aubrey has studied photography with the Atelier of the Griffin Museum of Photography, Mass College of Art and Design, and through the Digital Media Design program at Northeastern University. She has taken workshops on lighting and photographing people with Harvey Stein, Adrien Bisson, and Pierre Chiha. Aubrey draws inspiration mostly from early photojournalists such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Margaret Bourke-White, Lucien Aiginer, and Weegee as well as from avant-guard artists such as Godard and Eggleston. Her work has appeared in the QRCA VIEWS magazine where she is an editor and in exhibitions at the Griffin Museum of Photography. Aubrey also uses her photographic skills in her work as a usability researcher.
