Photography – Orlando, FL

Thuy Vi Gates, a travel photographer, hopes by shining a positive and intimate light on people and places, the viewer dreams and connects. She started working with photographs printed on stainless steel. The elemental and luminescent qualities of the steel reflects the ephemeral nature of the places and moments she captures. Her interest in the modern and ancient are explored in images such as Angkor (40x30 in.), a massive stone face printed wherein the steel grain is revealed, and Candy City (40x30 in.), where a relief of steel sky punctuates the Shanghai skyline. Highlights this year included being published in AAA travel guides, winning AFAR Travel Magazine\'s CATCH Contests for both Central America and Africa, winning RAWards Semi-Finals, a WPRK Local Heroes radio interview, and a City Arts Factory show. ...more
