The natural world is my passion, and I strive to convey the richness and importance of wild life on Earth.Jane Ball

Last fall I traveled to Namibia–an incredibly beautiful, harsh and splendid spot.  The people are lovely, the spiders big, the nation-building challenging, the landscape magnificent, and the animals wonderful.  I’m already planning my trip back.  And in April, I went diving in Solomon Islands–more beauty, more special collections of life.

Also last year, I sold an underwater image to Bel Ombre Hotels Development, a company that is developing a resort in the Seychelles.  An Italian company will use the image to create a mosaic mural that will be installed behind the reception desk.  Pretty cool!

Years ago, an art dealer purchased two of my photos for a wellness clinic and matched them with an Hasidic saying. It has been one of my favorites ever since.

When you walk across the fields with your mind pure and holy, then from all the stones, and all growing things, and all animals, the sparks of their soul come out and cling to you, and then they are purified and become a holy fire in you.”

That’s what I try to show–the sparks of soul.
