My photography is inspired by unique locations, animals, people, and a variety of situations that are often overlooked. Beauty usually goes unnoticed and unappreciated, yet it reflects aspects of our humanity that is memorable to capture with a camera. I strive to capture moments of beauty and magic. Whether photographing people or landscapes, the same approach applies. I am placing myself at the moment, being patient, and having faith that something magical will unfold.
A sense of reverence has fueled my photography for the natural world and its remarkable beauty. I resonate toward images that depict a peaceful coexistence between humans and nature. These quiet moments with my camera brings me back to my childhood: exploring, be curious, dreaming, seeing, and breathing in the beauty that surrounds me.
In the evolution of my photography, I am humbled by trying new techniques in analog and digital photography. I’ve learned that creativity requires a perennial sense of playfulness, finding that childlike fascination for the magic contained within each opportunity in life.

Capturing the world before her though a camera lens since childhood, Geraldine Pontius prefers street photography to any other genre. Here, in the Paris garden, she saw, across two brows at the same instant, in perfect harmony, the portrait of a thought. Her work can be found at www.geraldinepontius.com.
She now lives in Baltimore, MD and shoots film street photography as often as she can.

I am interested in making images of human creations (architecture / signage and interiors) and of the humans that inhabit them. My process is a conscious journey of discovery. I set out with an idea in mind knowing that the original idea may be eclipsed by a discovery which will reveal itself and capture my attention.
I was born in and grew up in Utah. I graduated with degrees in Anthropology and Women’s Studies from the University of Utah. My interest in photography began early in my life at age seven. I asked for and received my first camera to take with me to a YMCA camp. I have been exhibiting my work nationally and internationally since 1994.
I began making images in Africa working with women in Zimbabwe for two years in 1993 – 1994. This sparked my interest and great love for Africa.
I’ve traveled extensively in Eastern and Southern Africa. I solo backpacked the continent from Egypt to South Africa. Buses, minivans , motorcycles, ferries, small boats, and walking were my forms of transportation. I have lived and worked in three African countries: Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe for a total of 10 years combined. I have visited and spent time in thirteen countries in Africa.
My current body of work focuses on children in Ilha de Moçambique, Island of Mozambique. For more than 500 years, it was the capital of Mozambique and is itself a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I have been making images in Mozambique since 1996.
Spending months of time in Ilha de Moçambique since 2003 has allowed me to create images of people which are authentic visual documents, both full of and true to life. I will return in 2020 to continue to spotlight GIRLS and their vital role in producing global Africa’s RISE.
