Sandra Kicman is a talented photographer who is very passionate about her photos. Her exhibit in the Arcangel Gallery from April 27-June 2 will show off her unique perspective.  Her work has a way of capturing texture, color, positive and negative space and turning it into a truly magnificent snapshot of our visual world.
