Local Visions

Photography by Raymar Brunson & Terra Cooks

Marshall J. Gardner Center For The Arts

Both photographers are Gary residents and love to include the Steel City as a backdrop of their work. Brunson is a free-lance photographer and videographer with many years of experience developing and producing multimedia productions. Well-versed in all aspects of media and Web content production from pre-to post-production, including camera and video operation, photo editing and storytelling. When referencing his photography, “The beauty is in the everyday. I find the moments and subjects that may seem insignificant but are truly important and interesting. I then frame the image to capture the significance of the moment.”

Cooks moved to Gary from Chicago and is very proud to now call Gary her home. She’s a photographer, poet (aka Poetry ‘N’ Motion), author, songwriter, recording artist, stage performer, and radio show personality on WGVE 88.7 FM. Cooks is also a community activist, creating affiliations with several nonprofit organizations including the National Block Club University and Gary Historical and Cultural Society. She also advocates for special needs children, founding PoeTic Innovations as a resource hub for people with disabilities and their families.
