|Photographer promoting the arts|
by By Lindsey Jackson · December 14, 2012
Photographer and former West Liberty student, Sevana Stanley, showcased her art at the All-Music, All-Art event in Iowa City on Saturday. Her parents Dean and Shery Kirby have lived in West Liberty for 28 years. Dean, her father, went through school in West Liberty, as well as Sevana, though she spent her senior year in Texas. She said a little over three years ago, while living in Northern California, she was given a camera and started taking pictures.
“I realized how much I loved it,” Stanley said. “It wasn’t an obsession like it is now. I moved back to Iowa, started going to my friend’s local music events, like concerts and taking pictures of them live. It was awesome to capture their emotion.”
