Kim Kornbacher

Kim Kornbacher sees images waiting to be captured everywhere and delights in exploring the minute, often overlooked aspects of the world around her. She acquired her first camera – a Voightländer – when she was nine and has been an avid photographer ever since. Her current photographic objectives include expressing the interconnectedness, beauty, and fragility of nature through imagery. When not pursuing her photographic passions, Kim teaches online courses in biological and cultural anthropology, archaeology, and history from her home on Salt Spring Island.

Kim’s images for this year’s Photosynthesis exhibit explore details of the forest understory, both animate and inanimate, highlighting visually stunning yet ephemeral aspects of tropical and temperate environments.
