Kim McAlear

I am an amateur photographer living in Ithaca. My love of the outdoors and gardens often has me photographing botanical subjects but I love photographing people and street photography just as well. I most recently had images displayed at the Living Light Show during the Light in Winter Festival and won the juried art show through the Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport and CAP.
