Podcast Episode #2 – Aug 14, 2021
In this podcast interview we will be talking to Kas Stone, a full-time photographic artist based in Guysborough County, Nova Scotia.
Kas finds her inspiration, both personal and photographic, in the remote coastal scenery and moody weather close to home. The appeal is partly aesthetic, but also deeply rooted in her love of the great outdoors and her interest in geology and the natural environment.
Kas took up photography originally to illustrate her writings about wilderness travel, but it has since evolved into more contemplative imagery that explores the landscape in the context of broader environmental and human themes.
Her image-making always begins somewhere outdoors – on a foggy beach, a windswept barrens, a snowy field, or a bog. It then develops significantly in the digital darkroom, where Kas uses creative techniques to transform the camera’s raw materials into photographic images that are often mistaken for paintings.
Kas makes a living selling her work at fine art and craft shows across eastern Canada, exhibiting at galleries, and teaching workshops. Her portfolio also includes an extensive list of publications, with several books and feature articles in Canadian and U.K. magazines.
