Enjoy Tracie Fernandez’s photography at the Cody Library

Tracie weePortraits, black and white studies, landscapes and landmarks, 15 photographs by Tracie Fernandez, are on display at the library this month.

Tracie says “I am a photographer living in Meeteetse, Wyoming. Needing a new challenge in my life, photography has sparked my imagination. Armed with my camera, I find unlimited opportunities to capture the beauty of our little corner of Wyoming.  From the addition of filters, artistically enhanced, or left in its natural state, my goal is to let each photo tell its own story.”

Visit to see Tracie’s work.
