Cruising the back roads, beaches and many of Michigan's best kept secrets, Rockford resident and photographer Stacy Niedzwiecki snapped pictures. Lots of pictures ... pictures of nature and peaceful places ... pictures designed in her words to offer a "relaxing respite from a busy day."

From 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, April 22, Niedzwiecki will be at Reds on the River to meet guests and sign copies of the results of all those pictures. Reds is located on the banks of the Rogue River in picturesque Rockford, Michigan - and has been the subject of her lens on more than one occasion.

Niedzwiecki will be signing her two books - "Healing Images" and "Pure Michigan - Spring." Both books feature many of her photographs.

"You won't find images with people in them," Niedzwiecki said. "This allows the viewer to place their own perspective on the image; allows them to place themselves into the photo without identifying with someone else. It allows the art to be more personal."

Niedzwiecki began selling her works throughout Michigan, and through one local supplier, she was introduced to a cancer survivor who thought the images would be very emotionally and mentally calming for others during their treatment.

Niedzwiecki was then introduced to the art committee at Spectrum Health's Lemmen-Holton Cancer Pavilion and commissioned to supply 62 images for hanging throughout the pavilion.

In March 2010, the Lemmen-Holton Cancer Pavilion and Niedzwiecki co-published Healing Images, featuring all 62 of her photos from the Pavilion. There are incredible color images of gardens, beaches, light houses, bridges, farms, foliage ... many from throughout West Michigan, including Grand Rapids, Lowell, Cannon and Spencer Townships, East Grand Rapids, Ada, Grand Haven, and Holland. Sleeping Bear Dunes, Mackinaw and points in between are also featured.

For additional information on the artist and both books, go to Healing Images is also available at Spectrum Health's Lemmen-Holton Cancer Pavilion Specialty Shop in downtown Grand Rapids.
