Osceola History is currently exhibiting the photography of Catherine Perez at the Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum. The exhibit features photographs that complement the museum’s displays related to nature, transportation and tourism.
The photography exhibit will run through January 6. The history museum is located at 4155 W. Vine Street in Kissimmee and is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with free admission.
Perez was born in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1988 and pursued a career in communications. Photography is her passion and she enjoys capturing moments and places, creating memories wherever she goes through the lens of her camera.
Close ups and rule of thirds are Perez’s favorite techniques, especially when it comes to animals and nature. Her goal is to show the beauty of the colors, textures and details of each subject.
She loves visiting Kissimmee with her mother and has captured beautiful photos of Osceola County. During the past year, Perez worked at Experience Kissimmee as the social media coordinator.
Celebration is Perez’s favorite place to photograph in Osceola County, and she wants to inspire others to appreciate what our county has to offer. “Osceola is very close to my heart,” she said. “It’s a place full of colors and nature but especially, magic.”
For Perez, this showcase is a way to say “thank you” to Osceola for giving her the opportunity to create wonderful memories through the years and inspiring her eyes to capture the magic of this special and unique county.
The photos displayed at the museum are not for sale. You can see more of her art on her Instagram account: @catiperezphoto.
