Intentional or not, Austin based photographer Bella Kirchner can sink your soul with a mere glimpsing of her prints. Kirchner has an acute sense of the thread connecting the life bridge from hopeful idealistic youth to ever alive truth in aging and the encapsulated wonder of it all. There is simplicity within the frame of her subjects which speaks and moves yet remains timeless and nostalgic. The weight of the lives captured, the tangible realness of their being, Kirchner stirs wonder in permanence.
Her photos will be on display this Saturday December 8th at the Tin Whistle Art Gallery ( 5305 Bolm Rd). Details on the event can be found here. Make sure to check out the breadth, power, scope of her work through the website link below.
