Andrea Reynolds, a 1987 Ridgewood High School graduate, is exhibiting photographs from her travels to all seven continents. Her show at West Side Gallery includes 50 photos and runs through the end of May.
Reynolds believes that photography is a great way to instill curiosity in people about the world.
“An image may remind someone of a special place that they’ve traveled to with a loved one, or evoke a feeling of calm, adventure or curiosity that is truly unique,” Reynolds said.
She loves wandering around alleys in small towns or sitting on a mountaintop for hours photographing the unique landscape, wildlife or people that a new location offers.
“Some of my most memorable experiences also come from locations that I frequent every few years. That gives me the chance to photograph sites over a span of time and to watch changes taking place,” she explained.
