Judi Iranyi: Artist Statement

For the past 46 years, I have been seeking simplicity, directness, and purity in my photographs by attempting to capture the dignity and substance of ordinary people in their natural environment.

Photography for me is an act of distilling reality into my personal vision. A photograph speaks without words; it provides a medium in which to express myself.
I enjoy the closeness that happens in the moment when photographing people.

The recent color portraits are a new way for me to capture portraits.
The Roma Community images are from a larger project dealing with the discrimination that this community faces all over the world.
