The photographic images of B. McCormick fluctuate between Man-made structure(s) and Nature, creating and questioning visual depth when elements collide. Often her images give a sense of tactile "grit" in the air. Working with pinhole cameras and similar, she captures images that often test balance and footing – metaphorically or actual. At one time an Architectural Photographer and Industrial Designer, B. McCormick is now pursuing her personal work.

Recent juried shows include: Nude Nite Orlando, Nude Nite Tampa, and the Griffin Museum of Photography. The work is in private collections and has been shown in galleries and museums throughout the US. Visit her website at bmccormick-artist.com.
