Kim M. Ross is a digital fine art photographer working in the greater Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. Vernacular photography is Ross’s main interest and her art focuses on simple, familiar objects. She believes perspective, viewpoint and point of view are challenged and enriched by seeing daily life and every day items portrayed as art.
Using solid technical skills to create high quality exposures, Ross frequently expands her work by using post production software. In addition, she employs Polaroid / Fuji transfer and emulsion processes to further explore the world. Currently, Ross is studying watercolor painting with Maria Leysens, helping to enhance her artistic vision.
Active as a photographer since 2008, Ross has studied with Jim Zuckerman, Tony Sweet, Mike Moats, Kathleen Carr, Nancy Libson, Donna Eaton, Kathleen Clemons, and Art Wolfe. During a recent workshop critique session, Art Wolfe said that Ross’s work exhibits a, “quiet elegance.”
The Silver Eye Center for Photography, Bottle Brush Gallery, and other small galleries in the Pittsburgh area have displayed Ross’s work. In addition, her work has been included in fund raising events for the Hershey Symphony, and a charity focused on curing childhood cancers.
Ross holds an MA, American Studies from the Pennsylvania State University. She has been active in the East Coast museum, heritage and arts communities, as well as the Pennsylvania adult literacy community.
Currently, Ross is building her photography business to include portraiture, community events, and charity work.
