Photographer captures childhood innocence in Paseo exhibit

Oklahoma City photographer E. Marissa Lane captured the innocence, beauty and magic of Oklahoma City children and created a collage that will be on display all month at Sauced, 2912 Paseo.

Lane took most of the photographs during Paseo's annual Midsummer Fairie Ball, but other images capture the children around her home and church. She's no newbie to the spotlight, either; her artwork has graced various galleries in and around the state for the past 15 years.

"I find by capturing light moments through the lens, that I can express the beauty that sometimes flies right by us," Lane said, in a press release. "Many times when I find myself tired or stressed out, going to the park I can always find an image that captures the freedom expressed by children."

Visitors will have the chance to purchase several of the prints at the exhibit.

"I hope to attract people (who) just enjoy sharing art and creativity. I enjoy seeing the unique aspects of individuals and capturing a unique component or piece of their essence," Lane said. "I'm mostly really looking forward to being able to share some treasures with other people. That's very exciting for me."
