Fleur by Natalie Obermaier
While quietly viewing Natalie Obermaier’s portrait work, I am reminded once again of what makes a photo resonate.  Sure, there is the technical excellence she brings, using her Hasselblad camera, black & white film, and available light, but I return again and again to Natalie’s work because I feel the emotional pull.  Natalie and her subjects are connected, sharing, and engaged in discovering.  In creating a safe and loving atmosphere, Natalie is able to capture an indescribable “something,” (call it a je ne sais quoi) from her subjects, that is distinct, and I believe quite special.  Few artists today are able to take such exquisite portraits of children.  Natalie Obermaier is poised for great things. —Lane Nevares
