Recently I had the pleasure of participating in a very special photography project with my good friend Jill Fineis. This project came about as a result of the ‘Framed’ Photographer Invitational event sponsored by the Leavenworth Mountain Association which “connects community with the mountains for the benefit of both”. Jill was one of the four local photographers invited to participate.
Jill describes her project: “This is a story about mountain culture in Leavenworth, Washington as told from women who seek culture…community, art, place, sustainable food systems, reacreation, environmental awareness, the backcountry, their daughters, and the internal landscape.” Here is the link to the magic of Jill’s creative genius entitled “cul-ti-vate”.
Framed is a bi-annual photography competition dedicated to highlighting the unique balance of action sports and the beauty that surrounds Leavenworth, Washington. Its purpose is to showcase the diversity of recreational opportunities, unique lifestyle, and beautiful landscape available within the Upper Wenatchee Valley through the eyes of professional photographers; bringing with them an artistic point of view to an already stunning environment. This event and the photos it provides will not only be a way of accentuating our surroundings but also provide a canvass for future protection and advocacy of the Upper Valley. Like the name implies, our goal is to create something worth keeping, something to Frame.
