Private Commission from Renowned Photographer, Dorothy Blum Cooper
As many of you know, I lost everything in Hurricane Katrina. Among the things I lost that upset me the most were all my photographs of loved ones no longer with us or my little ones when they were born. So for me, capturing that special moment is so very precious.
Give yourself or someone you love the gift of a thousand words with Dorothy Blum Cooper's photographs. A native of Louisiana, raised in Kentucky and now residing in North Carolina, Dorothy Blum Cooper has been documenting and preserving her view of the world around her since childhood. This self-taught, self-styled photographer has the ability to spot the character of her subjects in an instant, creating an enduring image of ageless quality.
Working with her husband, award-winning artist and fine art photographic printer Bobby Cooper, Dorothy is able to allow her creativity to push the limits. Her genuine gift is her ability to reveal the heart of her subjects through her instinct and spontaneity. The distinct character of each subject is evident in her final prints. Dorothy works with her camera and film the way the painter works with brush and oils...her perception is rare. A work of art evolves through her capable eye.
Residing in private and public collections throughout the United States and Europe, Dorothy’s photography has won awards in local and national exhibitions. She offers her work in limited editions and accepts commissions in Louisiana and North Carolina. Commissions start at $475. For additional information, please contact Dorothy Blum Cooper.
