The Inner Path of Photography

We yearn for the taste of the sacred…and through our cameras discover it, the world, and ourselves.

“For art sings of God, and ultimately belongs to him…”

“In the end, truth will be found in his work, the corporeal body of the artist. It will not fall away. Man cannot judge it. For art sings of God, and ultimately belongs to him.”

(Patti Smith, “Just Kids”)

Just finished reading, “Just Kids”, Patti Smith’s memoir of her life with Robert Mapplethorpe. A beautiful book, reflecting the evolution of a mystical relationship, and a passionate commitment to one’s own art.

My New Book: “I Dream of Galveston”

I’m proud to announce my new book of photographs based on Galveston beaches and their mystery and magic. Click on the cover picture below for a description and to see sample photos. You can also order books to be shipped directly to you through the book link. Of course, if you want a more personalized, signed copy, I’ll be happy to take your order myself.

Here’s what’s been written about my book:

“For true beach lovers, the magic of the ocean never ends. In this little book about the Galveston beach, Heidi Straube has captured the peacefulness, fragile beauty, and silent gracefulness of children and adults at the beach. The stillness of her photos, many shot in the fog, remind us of the places we can go to within, no matter what our outside circumstances.

Galveston and its beaches were severely damaged during Hurricane Ike in October of 2008. Ms. Straube has captured the beauty and innocence that has always been a part of Galveston’s beaches and its visitors, and provides hope for the future.

“Aaaaah”….Heidi’s photographer group sighed upon first seeing her pictures.

Experience the memories and magic yourself in this lovely tribute to Galveston.”
