"Living with the Seasons"
Photography by Rachel Keslosky
"The Pocono Mountains have been my home for two decades. On most days of the year, I watch as tourists bustle through our not-so-little towns on their way to the resorts. They are here to enjoy the beauty of the area as much as the residents do. I see many tourists equipped with cameras, and it makes me wonder: Have they fully experienced the beauty of the Poconos? Have they frequented our area enough to see the Poconos evolve through the seasons? Have our own residents taken the time to explore their own backyards?
When I photograph what I see around me, I do so to share my experiences with others. In this body of work, I present what I see 365 days out of the year. The science behind the changing seasons is amazing to watch week after week, starting from the buds of spring to the bare, snow-covered branches of winter. This change affects the animal species that live here as well, whether it be for the entire year or for exclusive seasons. The Pocono area has sights beyond the resorts, and nature trails to walk instead of driving in a car. I encourage both tourists and residents of the Poconos to experience the world we live in for how it naturally exists."

She has resided in the Pocono Mountains for over two decades.

She has had graphic design work featured by Smashing Magazine for their monthly desktop wallpaper (titled “Hot Drinks for Cold Sloths”), and a photograph published as a postcard by the Pocono Arts Council. Keslosky credits her longtime residence in the Poconos for her work in nature photography, and residing in Lancaster County, PA for her interest in architecture. She has experience in working with film photography, especially Holga techniques.
Keslosky worked for Millersville University’s student-run newspaper, The Snapper, as a photographer and held the position of Photography Editor for two years.
