Leah Murray - A Photographer with Inner Vision

Leah Murray is a photographer with a well defined inner vision and the rare skill of finding a story within her pictures.

Leah has her home and studio near Trenton, Ontario in Hastings County and she also has a Zazzle online shop.

Although she has seen a lot of Canada over the years she still harbours an inner desire to one day travel to Yellowknife to photograph in the Arctic. In the meantime, her works can be found presented on many walls throughout the area where she lives.

I am attracted to Leah's well defined sense of artistic vision and will present many of her ideas in a future blog.

Leah says:
"inspiration for me comes from the world I live on -- earth is not only the home I love but an entity and a spiritual support for me. I am strongly influenced by such notable photographers as Frans Lanting, Jerry Uelsmann, Ansel Adams, Courtenay Milne and Galen Rowell."
