About Sandra Kourah
I am a visual storyteller and chaser of light …. always the light. I am a California based Fine Art Landscape Photographer with an ethereal and meditative visual storytelling style, evoking a sense of light and stillness in motion, and honoring the stories of nature. I am enamored by the way light changes and paints the beauty of this world. I am enamored with the power of light and the power of transformation it holds. Light to me is hope, faith, and a promise of what is yet to come. Light, as it dances and twirls creating different emotions within our souls. The light that beckons us to follow our wanderlust, be the light, be fearless, fall down, get back up and let the light in. I believe your soul is the endless source of Light. I believe your soul is home.
There is a quote that I have hanging on my wall and I reference it often:
“Discovery is seeing what everybody else has seen but thinking what nobody else has thought.”
A diamond in the rough is how I see the world. I look through my lens and words come to mind, from each wave that washes ashore to embrace the grains of sand that provides me my sanctuary, to a blazing sunset, to a majestic mountain terrain, or to a new days promising sunrise. My work is a visual story of the words that flow through me as I stand still, inhale, listen and feel the stories of nature, her magnificent light, and her gifts of beauty around me. Being in nature, experiencing the meditative quiet stillness that fills my soul as I create a photograph, is what I hope will evoke in the viewer as well, that light, that inner calm and stillness that nature offers to us in all her glory.
