Melanie West Photography, Contact

I have always enjoyed people, stories, the landscape and the stillness potentially found in looking clearly at our lives. Growing up in New Mexico within a large family of many artists, country parties and lively kitchen table conversations provided ample reason to speak up and join in. I also felt a desire to step back, reflect and find ways to preserve and reacquaint myself with these moments. I look for activity and quietude, delight and contemplation. Within the unique images remains my belief in our universal human qualities. I hope to share that with others through my photographs. To be present.

All of my projects are inspired by a connection to nature, self reflection, history of place and both the temporal and the lasting.
