Trudy L. Waterman
Trudy L Waterman has been a resident of Naper for almost 12 years. Bringing along a lifetime of interest in photography, Nebraska, and the life changes that came with the move, have afforded Ms. Waterman the opportunity to consistently pursue and create photographic art. Her initial interest in landscape and natural lighting has expanded, by necessity in the winters, to include indoor photography with controlled lighting. The genres then shift to metals, florals and still life thus far. Award winning photographs by Trudy Waterman have been in national juried shows around the country. She has had several solo and group exhibitions, and her work is in both public and private collections throughout the Great Plains.
With one black and white photography class in high school and one in college, the remainder of Ms. Waterman’s education, up until this last fall, has been predominantly self-taught through books and the study of other works. Ms. Waterman is currently studying for a master’s of arts degree in photography through the distance learning program with Falmouth University in Cornwall, England.
From the Artist:
As a photographer, one of the most frequently asked questions is what do you like to take pictures of. I struggled with this for years, always feeling inadequate not having a definitive answer. Ultimately I came up with this response, “I am an opportunist. I photograph and create images of a plethora of things that present themselves to me at any given time.” A photographer can see a photograph or an image in an instant and must be ready to capture that moment as only photography can. Occasionally one subject from one opportunity will turn into a series and become a body of work that grows and builds upon itself, essentially taking on a life of its own. As a result, I have a portfolio that contains a large percentage of randomly captured opportunities and a smaller percentage of actual series work. Some of this series work has now spanned almost a decade and I revisit the work and continue to build on a particular theme.
