Laurie Bullard has pursued her love of photography for over 40 years. Her work has evolved from black and white to color. Laurie explains, “Processing my own black and white work was about the challenge of creating a work of art through contrasts of lights and darks, textures and shapes. Later, using color film, the challenge became the added dimension of using the color in such a way as to enhance the graphic quality of the piece.”
In her pursuit, Laurie has taken numerous courses to enhance and improve the quality of her photography. Most recently, she attended a week-long workshop in Santa Fe taught by veteran National Geographic Magazine photographer, Robb Kendrick.
Today, Laurie’s photography is about capturing a rich detail or spot of color in her subjects – ordinary, everyday things. She is inspired by renowned photographers Frederick Evans, Elliot Porter and Ansel Adams. “I want the viewer to pause a moment, to really look, to see those details and the beauty therein.”
Laurie is a member of the artists’ co-operative, Gallery 65 On William in downtown New Bedford and the Westport Art Group. She has participated in a number of juried shows. She has photographed events and donated her own photographs to a number of not-for-profit organizations in the South Coast region and beyond. Her photographs hang in numerous private homes.
