For photographer Kathleen Fischer, the image is indeed everything. It’s what gets her out to the shores of Lake Michigan on a frigid Chicago morning, or to the scorching sands of the barren Utah desert at sunset. It’s what lingers at the edges of her vision as she patiently waits for the perfect light. It’s the distillation of her sense of mystery, of discovery, of wonder—all of which she shares with her audience.
Kathleen's Slide Show
Lou Fischer got his first camera at the age of 10. He documented his model cars and motorcycles, friends and family … little did he know he would end up being a commercial photographer. Lou graduated from the California College of the Arts in 1973, worked in product photography studios from California to New York and ultimately moved back home to Chicago where he opened a design and photography studio that lasted 30 years.
For the last ten years he has been documenting motorcycle land speed racing on the Bonneville Salt Flats www.bonnevillestories.com with stills and video.
Now semi retired he finds himself returning to his roots of fine art photography.
