I may be a writer first but photographer is a close second. It harkens back to my days in the pits of too many rock concerts. Anyway, I am always scoping out photographers and discovered Kim Zier, who happens to be a Jersey Girl. Let’s call it photographic kismet that I found her just before Halloween. You see, Kim’s photos drew me in because they are quite haunting images of places I have visited during many solo journeys, evoking stories and tales from the great beyond.
Kim is a true artist. She has not studied professionally, so her art is born out of her passion and lives in her soul. “I’m sure, like most, I am an emotionally driven artist,” she says. “I have a photo journalistic philosophy with a creative spin.”
I wondered if Kim had an artistic vision of a site or landmark while photographing it but she said no. “I see the photo as a canvas. Photoshop and other editing programs are my brushes to create something that is uniquely my own. I let the image inspire my imagination and see where it takes me…it’s always a surprise.”
Kim’s surreal images are full of haunting inspiration which set the stage for many a fantastic journey. Search these images for the other-worldly presence. Can you see them?
