The photographs of artist Tommer Roush

The Lopez Island Library proudly presents “IMAGES”, the photographs of Tommer Roush.  Don’t miss this beautiful work.  The artist shared the following statement:

“As a child I was fortunate enough to
travel with my family.  We had many
adventures.  My father was never without
his camera capturing the images of our
childhood.  I remember seeing life as photos.

When I was twelve my dad gave me my
first camera.  I spent many hours trying to
emulate him and capture images of my surroundings.

As I grew so did my skills.  In high
school I was always shooting photos.
I ended up working on the annual my
junior and senior years.  I remember
that everything looked so much clearer
threw the lens.

The camera always gave me a freedom.
When I wasn’t shooting I was in my mind.
I still do.

I went on to study photography at:
Western Washington University
Darkrooms Of Seattle
Tahoe Photographic Workshops

I worked as a photographic assistant to:
Chuck Kuhn Photography
Rocky Sloskov
Cathleen King

In my late twentys I ran my own studio
and shot commercially for many clients.
All the while capturing images of the places I loved and my adventures.

These are my Images”

Thanks, Tommer
