New Topographics, works by Natasha Holmes

Natasha Holmes is an artist born and raised in southern California. She recently received her MFA in Photography from Indiana University in Bloomington and holds a BFA in both ceramics and photography from California State University in Fullerton. Holmes fell for photography in her early teens when she realized a camera flash could light up a pitch-dark room illuminating the scene and exposing film for that split second that was previously hidden. She was hooked and had some early adventures in photojournalism as the Photo Editor and photographer for her college’s paper.
While freelancing for several southern California magazines she was also shooting and printing as a staff photographer for a local newspaper in Idyllwild, CA. Growing up in a very small mountain town with weekend warriors for parents, adventures were continuous and she learned the importance of observing. Holmes also holds a minor in Anthropology, which promoted skills in valuing details. Primarily uses her work time to seek and collect objects and observe the way we interact with them and our surroundings. She is a squirrel. Preferring to work in series in photography enables her to collect the thoughts that are pieces of her current attentions.
Holmes has studied abroad and shown internationally in Italy and Japan as well as in California, Florida, Illinois and Indiana. She is currently on the run and enjoying her freedom from academia while experiencing early am visits to Starbucks parking lots where she can listen to everyone’s special and unique drive thru orders.
A public reception with the artists on was held on Friday, June 20th from 7:00 PM–9:00 PM at Hotel Indigo.
