Ali Pica is an educator, writer, artist, and photographer. Ali’s artistic purpose is to unearth beauty from the seemingly simplistic and mundane aspects of daily life. Ali says this about her photograph: “This photo was taken on the Lackawanna River Trail in Scranton, PA. There are several pieces of art and graffiti along the trail. This piece in particular, in combination with the gloomy weather, made me think of how we are held in suspension right now and a way to cope is to appreciate the beauty in small things.”
