I've been a picture taker for as long as I can remember. People, places, things. The keeper of memories. Gradually, the passion for dedicated photography worked its way into my being. Photographing the natural world, the realm of infinite variety and constant change - sublime, powerful, beautiful, bizarre. Walking or jogging, toting a camera or two, stopping for moments or hours, taking hundreds of photos for the occasional aha! shot, and those surprises along the way. ~ S
Along with Shireen's passion for dance and travel is her zeal for photography. Her dramatic photo is used as the logo for the traveling art exhibit Water, Water Everywhere: Paean to a Vanishing Resource. Her photos appear on the catalogue covers and within the pages of the publication, and were exhibited at the El Paso Museum of Art.
Several of Shireen's photos are included in the book Uncontained: Writers and Photographers in the Garden and the Margins , (Baksun Press, 2007) and were on display at Norlin Library (University of Colorado, Boulder).
Shireen was a finalist in the 2015 photography contest at Flamingo Gardens in Davie, Florida, with her photo Anhinga, which was on display during the two-month gallery exhibition. Anhinga was also exhibited for three months at Mike's Camera in Boulder, Colorado.
