Alison Sherrow is a photographer based in the high desert along the Rocky Mountains of southern Colorado.
Inspired by her grandfather's love of taking pictures, she owned her first camera, a Polaroid, at age twelve.
Several years of working in photography labs, along with further studies in the world of interior design, helped hone her eye for color, which is an important aspect of both fields. Alison's personal decor style of mixing the old with the new, combines well with her photography subjects of rustic barns and farmhouse objects.
"My passion is creating photographs that speak softly to the soul by capturing moments in time, conceived with a nod to the past and a touch of vintage charm."
The atmosphere of her photography transcends time. The soft tones, along with the neutral and pale palettes, create a pleasurable experience for the viewer, evoking a bittersweet emotion of nostalgia, and granting a brief escape from the modern world's often harried pace.
Alison's admiration of old novels is also intertwined, in not only the name chosen behind her work, but in an endearing series of photographs which employ the use of aged pages in photographic form.
Forever grateful in following her passion of creating art for a living, Alison finds joy interacting with others through her work.
