Artists Statement


Whether real or imagined, photographer Heather Exley is always interested in the stories that surround artifacts and historical places.  Many of the images in this series of photographs can no longer tell their own story, so viewers are invited to spin their own.  Heather’s camera of choice is a low-tech, cheap plastic camera, the Diana, another favorite is the Holga.  Both of these cameras have a plastic lens which contributes to vignetting and blurred edges.  The images in the series Alabaster Stone were shot with a digital camera.  Heather Exley lives outside of Philadelphia with her husband and children. She teaches art in a Quaker school.
