Studio 3P, LLC is pleased to announce that their lead photographer Kimberly Case’s portrait “Airborne” was awarded the Blue Ribbon for Digital Photograph in the Professional Fine Art Division of the 2021 South Carolina State Fair.
Case’s portrait photograph depicts a young man daydreaming about his future after reading a book about the adventures of a pilot. Hallmarks of Case’s work are richness and whimsy. Incorporating sometimes fantastical themes, wardrobe and props, her photographs are often first mistaken for oil paintings, due to their tones and aura.
Case shares, “My desire in each portrait is to freeze a moment in time; usually not the moment that the shutter winks here in the 21st century, but a different moment, one sometimes long ago, sometimes far away. By using light sculpting, custom backgrounds, and vintage props and wardrobe, I strive to create a brief window the viewer can peer through, seeing exactly what I have contrived for them to see. Sometimes this is an intimate glimpse of a person at rest and unguarded, sometimes a snapshot of a subject poised as if ready to speak. I attempt to transport the viewer to another place and time.”
