Growing up in California, Angeline JoVan’s first camera was her grandmothers Brownie – only allowed to be used under strict supervision. Bitten early by the photo bug she found herself in the local college photography department, where she reveled in all things photographic. Graduating with a degree in Fine Arts/Photography, the future was rosy. Then catastrophe – she lost everything in a house fire – cameras, negatives, prints – including any motivation to reassemble her life as a photographer. She became a corporate citizen for 30 years, far from the world of art.

35 years later in 2011, Angeline picked up a camera again.  Since then she travels extensively gathering images; everything is a photo waiting to be taken.

    Some say the heart and sole of a camera is the Image Sensor . As far as the camera goes, this may be true. But, the heart and sole of a photograph comes straight from the heart of the photographer.
    As Gale says, your heart shares living & life. In turn then this is shared through your camera into a beautiful photograph.
    Your love for photography is contagious and I have been infected big time.
    Thank you.
