When Cara Williams Fry was 8, her father saw some photos she had taken with his camera. Remarking on her “good eye,” he made her a present of the expensive camera. That gift, and those encouraging words, became an inspiration that would take her into photography, videography, film and television. Now the senior vice president and chief content officer at witf, Williams Fry retains a love of the still image. She said she feels something is revealed in capturing “that one moment in time” that is not found in video or film.

Working as the managing producer of a national wildlife TV show called “Wild Moments” gave her the ability to visit Africa and photograph animals in their natural habitat. Since 2002, she has made three trips there and photographed wildlife including lions, elephants, cape buffalo, cheetahs and even penguins. Photos and video segments from these trips will be on display in the Lowengard Atrium at the witf Public Media Center, available for viewing during normal business hours from Dec. 12 to Feb. 12.

Williams Fry also has passed on a love of photography to her son, Ian Crammer. As family tradition now dictates, she bought Ian his first camera. The exhibit will also feature his photography.

Join witf for a free art exhibition and reception with the artists, including musical performance by world-renowned pianist and composer, Steve Rudolph.
