Photography by Linda Toki ’87 was exhibited recently at 29 Vines in Purcellville, Va. The exhibit featured more than forty photos which she has taken over the past ten years, including striking black-and-white flower photos, agricultural landscape photos, and graphic close-ups of natural objects.

“I particularly like to photograph nature, flowers, and landscapes because it reminds me of growing up in the Allegheny Mountain region of western Pennsylvania,” Linda said. “Photography is my meditation; it is very relaxing and gets me away from the urban sights and sounds, which aren’t always so appealing.”

The exhibit exclusively displayed photographs that Linda takes on her personal time, but she also takes a lot of photographs as the visual information specialist for the Client Services Team at the Farm Credit Administration. In fact, largely because of Linda’s photography and graphic design skills, the agency has received many awards over the years through the Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area, including Best Photography and Use of Images, Communicator Awards of Distinction, the FCA Distinguished Service Award, and a three-award win.
