is a colorful person who conveys her fine art world in black and white. Her photography
transports the viewer to a timeless plane of depth and translation. Through
eliminating color, Lambert creates representative hues and values in grayscale
that evoke personal interpretations from the individual viewer. Light
makes a design visible and produces subtle changes that transcend verbal
interpretation. She describes her medium as light no matter what the technique
of production happens to be.

“Concentrating on the use of light and dark,
which I use as a design element, allows me to keep the design and composition
simple no matter how complicated it may appear at first glance. Then to further
clarify the two-dimensional space, or format, I incorporate more formal aspects
of design. Although the work is realistic I break up space abstractly before
thinking of the actual impact of the subject matter. For me, this cuts through
the visual, emotional and psychological chaos that fills our world and
clarifies the image.”

Painters influencing her work include Georges
de la Tour, Rembrandt and Vermeer. Photographers whose work she deeply admires
include Edward Weston, Ruth Bernhard, Berenice Abbott and Margaret
