Kelly Cushing Photography & Fine Art

Born in and raised in Vancouver, BC Canada, I was surrounded by beauty from my beginnings. Receiving my first camera at the age of 13, was the beginning of a new and enduring love. My camera has been an extension of who I am.

Being quite shy in my younger years, the camera became my voice. I could be part of something and hide behind my camera. It would bring conversations to me when I showed people my photographs. I can share my view of the world without a word.

People ask what kind of photography I do and I stumble for the answer. I photograph whatever interests me at the time. Sometimes, it’s a rusty lock on a chain that looks so old that it wouldn’t dare be opened. Other times, it’s capturing the pure joy in someone’s face when they see a long time lover, or a new addition to the family. It could be the shape of a body and how the sweat glistens in the light in such a way you can almost feel the muscles aching underneath the skin.

I love that I have an amazing tool that enables me to freeze a moment in time. I am grateful for my camera that allows me to take what I see and share for all to see. In addition, I found my first love at 13. I wasn’t always able to give it my full attention and love, but she waited patiently for me when I had time to explore and shoot. Over the years, I have upgraded her but her essence has always been there.

Mixed media has been my latest artistic expression in displaying my photography. For example, transferring my photographs to reclaimed wood or tiles is how I show my work. It is time intensive, however, I love how it looks.

My creativity is constantly evolving.
