Through observation of captured human emotion, one can often get the sense immediately whether the subjects, in Cherel’s photographs, were fulfilled in their lives.  

The book is about seizing moments to illuminate emotion on film which display striking contrasts between people and diverse cultures. Now, for those who can not travel to Washington, DC to visit the National Museum of the Arts to enjoy and appreciate Cherel’s startling yet beautiful photography, the book “Through the Lens of her Camera” is now available to all by visiting

To get a sense of just how gifted an eye Cherel Ito had in capturing the varied emotions of humankind, one must see the book, filled with an entire collection of images. Stunning portraits from photography, were painted of people from the Ozarks to Japan to Israel to Africa and many places in between, all featured in one publication.
