Wies moved from the Netherlands to the Kootenays a year ago and has been exploring the region and the people in it through photography.
As an independent photographer, her style is spontaneous, playful and pure. She strives to bring a fresh outlook by capturing the subtle elements of any given environment and the variety of emotions reflected on people’s faces.
Wies’ travels have also brought her many opportunities to see the changing landscapes of the world in different light. Above all, her intention is to capture the magic of the moment by noticing the small details that define the beauty of any given place. Because there is beauty everywhere if you slow down and pay attention.
