Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty’s Catskill NY Real Estate Office is proud to present the art of Deborah Ramsden in an exhibition titled “San Miguel” as part of our "Gallery At Work" series.

Deborah Ramsden is a photographer from Woodstock, NY. In 2018, she exhibited works at Emerge Gallery in Saugerties, NY as part of their group exhibition Abstrakt. In the video (courtesy of Emerge Gallery's youtube channel), Deborah discusses finding the "abstract" in her photographs of San Miguel. 

 

Deborah & Her Photographs:

I have lived in the Hudson Valley all my life, never thought of myself as an artist, and have no formal art training. However I grew up in a home filled with antiques and art, and have always been drawn to the color, shape, patterns, and textures of life.  I was blessed to have known Aaron Siskind*, who was a close friend of the family, and his abstract images have been an ongoing inspiration for me.

My photography journey began in Mexico, in the magical city of San Miguel de Allende with my iPhone. I walked for hours on the cobblestone streets. It was so easy to lose time in the slow pace of life; my senses were heightened by the vivid and bold colors of this colonial city. From the morning light in a courtyard to a peeling aging wall or bright painted doorway - every block offered a new surprise, and my photos often caught detailed images that were like abstract compositions. 

When I returned home to the Catskills, I began to see things through that same lens and am still exploring my fascination with the visual world. 

*Aaron Siskind was a well-known American Photographer. "Siskind's photographs have been widely exhibited and he won many awards for his photography, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the Distinguished Photography Award from the Friends of Photography. Siskind was a photography instructor at Chicago's Institute of Design and served as head of the department there from 1961 to 1971." For more information on Aaron Siskind, visit icp.com
