Artist Statement
Gena grew up in Kansas, lived through tornadoes and moved to the Emerald City. Like Dorothy in the land of Oz, she journeyed through her viewfinder Down Under into the peaceful and beautiful land of the Hobbits' Shire.

She found it filled with vibrant color, glowing light and astounding natural loveliness. Gena made these images to share the charm of the Hobbits' homes and village. Gena loves becoming immersed into the creative zone as she shoots images. She loses track of time and becomes fully present. Moment by moment, she sees the world with fresh eyes, exploring and discovering nuances of light, color, texture, line, form and movement.

You may view other images Gena has shot in different worlds here.

"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit hole, and that means comfort."
