The Working Proof: Sharon Montrose - Flying Geese

I am super excited to launch Flying Geese by Sharon Montrose over at The Working Proof. I have been a huge fan of Sharon's photography ever since I first saw it a couple of years ago. Sharon's work is really about the animals she shoots - she lets them direct her, with the aim of featuring animals outside of their environments and "capturing a moment that will last as long as the viewer needs to absorb their charms." In this case, two geese caught simultaneously flapping their wings. Sharon said she was "totally shocked at how loud geese are. They actually beat out the bass of the hip hop music in the studio next door."

Flying Geese is an open edition, signed by Sharon. It was printed on super thick Fine Art 285 gsm luster finish paper with archival inks. Sharon chose to pair her print with the Pablove Foundation, a charity dedicated to funding pediatric cancer research and advances in treatment, educating and empowering cancer families, and improving the quality of life for children living with cancer through hospital play, music and arts programs. The Pablove Foundation was created to honor Pablo Thrailkill Castelaz, the son of the founders. Pablo was six years old when he lost his battle with bilateral Wilms’ Tumor, a rare form of childhood cancer. Imbued with his spirit and inspired by his strength, Pablove is dedicated to the daily, global fight against childhood cancer and the suffering that comes in its wake.
