Spotlight: Kira Seamon
It's a great day to introduce the work of someone I find highly talented. It is with great honor, today on the Jimmy Broccoli page and website, I share with you the amazing experimental photography of Kira Seamon.
Kira is the 50th artist to be featured here. Congratulations Kira!
Featuring Kira as a Featured Guest was an easy decision. But deciding which talent to feature was a bit of a struggle. Kira is an accomplished and award-winning author; she is also a celebrated dancer with multiple accolades and is a noteworthy choreographer. She is also an experimental photographer and a visual artist. To make this feature accessible, here I concentrate on Kira’s amazing photography. Her images are exceptional.
Bursting with colorful displays, the images bleed onto the screen and into the mind. They’re beautiful, creative, and extraordinary.
Here is Kira is her own words:
Kira Seamon is an award-winning scholar, dancer, choreographer, photographer, visual artist and author. Her kaleidoscope photography has been displayed in over fifty solo shows and she made her solo museum debut in the Attleboro Arts Museum in 2021. Her exhibit entitled Stained Glass Sky features fall foliage in a fresh, new way. Branches, bark and leaves recombine into fascinating shapes and colors reminiscent of stained glass. She has received over fifty newspaper cover stories and her Patriot Ledger arts cover story, (Voted New England's Best Regional Paper), went mini-viral and was published online/print in 123 towns, or the entire eastern half of Massachusetts. A fifteen-time grant recipient, she has also received a personal letter from Massachusetts State Senate President Karen Spilka and a Certificate of Recognition from the Massachusetts State Legislature in recognition of her Framingham Cultural Council grant. She was the inaugural artist-in-residence for Natick, MA and has been produced and aired by Wellesley Public TV, Medfield Public TV, Easton Public TV, Cambridge Public TV, Westwood Public TV, Attleboro Public TV and Dedham Public TV, which also produced and aired a 1.5-hour documentary on her art.
It's been a while since I’ve featured a photographer here – and there is no photographer I’d rather feature than Kira Seamon. I love her work – and know you will too!
