Bernice Williams

Originally I studied painting and sculpture. My first photography course was undertaken primarily out of curiosity but it soon became my preferred creative medium. Since I began looking through a lens, I have been searching for beauty with my camera. Whatever the subject, my aim is not merely to make a visual record of what I see. Rather, I search for the point where form, light and shadow combine in visual harmony, creating a sense of quietude and solemnity. To be able to capture a fleeting moment of beauty through the mechanism of light passing through a lens, and then being able to hand over that same moment to someone else, is for me the magic of photography.
