Linda Labbe Nature Photos Currently on Display in the AVH Cafeteria
Linda Labbe, a Berlin native, now from Connecticut, currently has her nature photography on display at the Androscoggin Valley Hospital Auxiliary Rotating Art exhibit in the AVH Cafeteria until May 7. An Artist Reception is scheduled for Monday, April 23, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM in the Cafeteria to provide an opportunity for anyone to meet Linda and view her art.
Linda’s subjects run strongly to wildlife, including deer, birds, moose, and bears, including polar bears. They are sharp and colorful, with many striking close-ups. There are also some scenic photos that capture special effects with the aurora borealis and ice forms on the banks of the Androscoggin River. All of her wildlife images were captured in the wild in their natural settings.
Linda’s passion for nature photography is borne of a life of experience living abroad and traveling. After graduating from Notre Dame High School, then earning her nursing degree at White Mountain Community College and beginning her career at St. Louis Hospital, she and her family joined ParkWest Children’s Fund, a missionary relief organization, and travelled to Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Guatemala, providing relief supplies to these post-Civil War countries. She says, “This experience expanded our view of the world we live in and its many cultures. My passion for nature and wildlife photography found its roots as a result of our annual camping trips, all we could afford as family at that time. The greatest gift given to me by my husband was to encourage my independence and seek out self-fulfillment, which was my love for the outdoors. My education as a photographer has been most informal, attending seminars and expeditions given by professional photographers such as National Geographic, Joseph Van Os, Quark Expeditions and Backcountry Journeys and having travelled to the Arctic Archipelago, Antarctica, and many other countries.”
It will be worth one’s while to meet Linda at her Artist Reception. At the same time, you can enjoy lunch at the Cafeteria! Linda can be found at Linda A. Labbe @SUPER NATURAL EXPRESSIONS or contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (860) 759-9008.
