Meet me: Denise Dupras. By day, I work as a General Internist taking care of patients ages 16+ with medical problems and concerns. I have worked at Mayo Clinic for 28 years. When I completed my training, I built a home in northwest Rochester and became very interested in birds and then nature photography. It wasn’t long until the spirit of adventure took over and I set out on a quest to see and photograph the beauty of nature, both near and far. Soon it became apparent that there was much more than was evident with a first glimpse. More importantly, I began to realize the experience is what made the moment special, not necessarily the image.
My goal in photography has been to share my experience of the moment with those who view my images. I believe that photography, while capturing a moment, invites reflection into one’s soul.
What is it that you see? What do you feel? Does it stir your heart? Does it connect you with family, friends, or God?
I will share some of my images and share my thoughts about the meaning they hold, before inviting you to go out in nature and capture your own images. Come casual with walking shoes and a camera. We will then gather and share our stories in imagery.
