Abby Williamson: Exploring Through the Lens

Artist Statement

The market in Zagreb is cold and slightly gloomy, but full of life. There is a line 30 deep of bundled patrons waiting to have the first buckets of sauerkraut from the local farmers. I can hear the bustle of market-goers and a man playing the violin just outside the entrance. I feel enriched here, witnessing this spectacle, peaking inside the workings of a culture I never learned about in school. 

I take photographs to define my experiences, to encapsulate these moments and preserve them in a picture. I want to share these places in the only way I can. I want to capture the grand landscapes and the mundane corners in equal glory, in equal measure, so I can tell the story that these places have taught me. So I can remember that they exist beyond my lens and beyond my memory.

“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.”
