Artist Statement

Connie Publicover's work with water drop photography reveals the beauty she has found, and continues to find, in a drop of water. One can hardly imagine the beauty and complexity that can be held within a tiny drop of water. She chooses to work with moving water, encapsulating refractions and reflections as the drop falls.

Artist Biography

Born in Nova Scotia, Connie was one of the first photographers to embrace working with refractions in free falling water drops. Her work is admired by fellow photographers and artists.

Connie created seven water drops images between 2008 - 2016 that were displayed in Times Square, New York City, as Kodak’s Photo of the Day, chosen from worldwide submissions. Her work is internationally known and her story on how and why the water drop became such a big part of her life was featured in the February 2012 issue of Saltscapes Magazine.

Connie continues to create new techniques to showcase the amazing qualities that she finds in a single drop of water. Her most recent body of work has been with mirrored images and she is currently working on a technique using broken reflections.
