Glenda Pugerude reflects on her work:

“Brownie, Instamatic, Nikonis, Nikons and Canons….Digital.”

“Fuzzy black and white, fuzzy color, bad photos, better photos, slides, prints and digital.”

“The evolution of one who takes pictures. Self taught. Weddings, families, events, travel and more travel. Vietnam, Peru, Central Europe, Haiti, South Africa, Zambia, Dominican Republic, Iceland, Ireland, Turkey, Israel……..abandoned things, the essence of place, people, light, shadows, micro and macro. Making viewers smile, contemplate, reflect, wish to visit a place and see the extraordinary.”

“I do not take technical photos.  Mine are done on the run…..I see something that if I took time to contemplate would be gone.  I am an opportunist.”
