Gift of the artist

Laurie Moody studied black and white photography when prints were developed in a dark room, but now works in digital color photography.  Blue Shadow Series, #2 reflects her interest in shadow and light with the addition of color.  The winter sunlight on the painted walls and doorways of Santa Catalina Monastery in Arequipa, Peru, provided her with a unique opportunity to explore this interest.  The intense colors, dark shadows and clear blue sky created abstract designs that the viewer can explore on several levels

Laurie Moody received a doctorate degree from New York University and was chair of the English as a Second Language (ESL) Department at Passaic County Community College until her retirement last year. She has traveled extensively and has published her photographs in conjunction with her travel writing.  Moody continues to study photography and is currently working on a new series.
