Kit Frost Photography, Thursday, 3/30, 6 p.m.

KIT FROSTWillowtail Springs Nature Preserve and Education Center in partnership with Mancos Public Library presents a reception and presentation with artist Kit Frost.

Whether capturing still images, recording time-lapse and video sequences or chasing the light at our National Parks, Kit’s photography is emboldened by grand and intimate landscapes. Kit’s preferred work method is to explore landscapes over an extended period of time in order to capture the essence of each location throughout the day and into the night. Often found working with traditional film, digital and smart phones, Kit’s style is to capture the ever-changing and elusive light in front of her cameras, and her belief is that the best images are not created by the camera but by the passion and vision.
