This work from Wendi Schneider represents her ongoing body of work from the Sanctuary series of "States of Grace."
"I am driven by a quest for grace and balance in my life and in my work. I strive to portray a personal interpretation rather than a strict representation, and find a balance between the real and the imagined. I am particularly drawn to the sensual lines of nature, details of objects as they are defined by light – the edge of a feather, the exquisite lines of natural forms. I seek to capture the fleeting beauty that is often overlooked, in hopes of preserving that magical moment of illumination that touches the soul. I photograph that which makes me catch my breath or makes my heart flutter."
