Artist StatementDebbi is fascinated by various cultures and likes to go off the beaten path to find the perfect shot. “People are quite interesting and everyone has a story”. Her emphasis is on every day places, people and things that are often taken for granted. Her philosophy is in the saying "Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance". Debbi likes to capture that dance.
Debbi Granruth a self taught photographer born in Tampa, Florida where she spent her early childhood. She moved to Maryland in her teens and has lived there ever since. Being a former Floridian has made an impact on her photography as she prefers to photograph tropical locations. She loves the peaceful happy feeling people get when they are on vacation and she loves bright and saturated colors. It brings a smile to her face and also to the people around her...but she also loves the other side of black and white as well. She has recently purchased a home in Palm Coast, Fl. Now she spends part of her time in Florida, where she feels she is back to her roots.
From photographing a crack in a concrete floor to a beautiful beach scene she finds interest in everything. Debbi’s philosophy is “There is beauty in everything if you just take the time to look”.
