Lila Sparks-Daniels comes to photography with a love of exploring the world around her and creating visual memories. She constantly “works” to capture the beauty and the dignity of everyday people. ….wherever she may be.
Since 1966, Lila has visited over 43 countries with camera in hand. Her images reflect her curiosity about the human condition and the ways cultures address basic life questions. Inspired by French photographers Brassai, Robert Doisneau, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Will Ronis, Lila follows their lead in honoring people going about their daily lives.
Often Lila is in Paris, a city with which she has an ongoing love affair. Making annual trips since 1988, Lila has created a body of work that includes thousands of images, a photographic book: Being in Paris, and a slideshow: Savoring Paris.
