Ms. Chesler's natural talent to visualize the aesthetic, intellectual and spiritual dimensions of her images is evident in her work. The artist captures art in the natural expressions of emotions and beauty with boldness and relentless bravery so as to catch such moments in natural light and without manipulation of subject or scene.

Fine art photographer and photojournalist Betsey Chesler is an artist with a discourse. Ms. Chesler's mission is reminiscent of the Art for Life's Sake movement of the 1930's: To merge photo journalism with art to enlighten and bring special attention to social needs throughout the world. Her photographs reveal, inspire and challenge viewers to the call to action for positive change to social conditions of men, women and children across the globe.
