Missy Burton

Artist StatementI use photography as the medium to express my interpretation of life, love & the world around us. I love working with color but I am particularly drawn to black & white images because the absence of color encourages the viewer to look beyond the obvious to explore the subliminal. My inspiration mainly comes from my perception of social influences. I invite the viewer to approach my work with curiosity and be open to a strong connection with my images and the story behind them.

As a little girl, with my grandfather’s camera in hand, I quickly discovered that I could freeze moments in time in such a way that my images would tell a story even if I was not there to narrate it. -Missy B.
