Marsha loves taking candid pictures.  These spontaneous, unposed captures are both challenging and rewarding.  Entering into a stranger’s space allows for an unexpected interaction, which is frequently positive.   These experiences reinforce her passion for street photography.  Marsha’s work is included in private collections and has been shown in galleries across the United States.
