Jane Cass Photographs
riginally a Nova Scotia native, Jane now calls Ottawa home. A self-taught, award winning, nature and landscape photographer, she enjoys and embraces the diversely rich vistas primarily of eastern Ontario.
Using what could be called Digital Impressionism, through the use of light, patterns and texture she evokes an emotional connection between the viewer and her work. Whether it’s capturing the aura of serenity of a centuries old farm, local wildlife, the cloaked secrets of a morning mist, or the history laden stones of bridges and abandoned houses, Jane has often wandered down roads less traveled.
Jane spends at least two days a week traveling the dirt roads and back country of rural Ontario connecting with nature, capturing the scenery and vanishing landscapes – doing what she loves
“The quote from Don McCullin “Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” seems to express the inherent connection I want people to sense when looking at my work”
The past couple of years Jane has had her photographs produced on wood, metal, and acrylic giving her work both a more stunning and more practical aspect - the metal and acrylic works may be hung outside.
