First Coast Reflections by Mary Atwood

Mary Atwood: Artist Statement March 2014

Mary Atwood is a fine art photographer based in Jacksonville, Florida.  Her artistic approach is based on the idea that the image I produce with the camera is only a starting point, and that the ultimate destination for each image is a unique journey to be explored. 

The artwork she creates is her attempt to express “her vision” – a visual manifestation of lessons learned from what she sees in the world around her.

She believes that there is a significant difference between looking and seeing; looking is an instinctive act, while truly “seeing” is much more of a skill. She also believes that every person “sees” things from a unique perspective, which is influenced by their own life experiences.

Atwood's challenge as a photographer is to see, but her challenge as an artist lies in creating works which give the viewer an opportunity to share what she see.

Much of her work has a personal story attached to it.  She is sometimes able to put that story into a single word – a “visual verb” which describes what she is hoping to express with that particular image.   Frequent topics for her work would include love, family, nature, and connective spirituality.
