Gallery Reception Interview

Victoria Navin -- Glacier, South Iceland


"A self-taught photographer, I am interested primarily in landscape and natural phenomena. For inspiration, I usually look to trees, rocks and boulders, bodies of water and roofscapes. VIEWS OF BRAZIL offers 23 photographs from an August 2017 trip to Brazil, in which I visited Manaus, the Amazon, Brasilia, Salvador, Rio de Janeiro and Foz do Iguacu. I find inspiration in the lines, planes, spaces, and texture in various natural and man-made structures.

"I am also interested in monumental architecture as well as the smaller details that define a location as unique, such as doors, windows, balconies and streetscapes.

Albertus Magnus College and hold master's degrees from New York University, Georgetown University and Pratt Institute.

"I am a retired librarian who enjoys travel, and have recently visited Brazil, Portugal, Thailand, Laos, Panama and Guatemala.
I am the mother of two adult daughters not wanted by the FBI and the grandmother of little Mila."
