Philosophy: Kelly Lee Flora has been pursuing colorful, thought provoking imagery for over 20 years.
The world is full of beautiful sights if you know where and when to look for it.
The essence of a great image begins, not with your eyes, but as a vision in you're mind's eye. The camera then becomes just a tool to help translate that vision to the rest of the outside world. That may help to explain why thousands of people can photograph the same place and create something different, and also how so many seem to completely miss the true essence of what they saw with their eyes. They are simply "taking" a snapshot of what is in front of them. An Artist sees the inner vision first and then goes about the task of bringing it to life for the rest of the world to see.
