Amanda Kimble

Artist bio

My name is Amanda Kimble and I live in Vicksburg, MS. I'm originally from a small town called Junction City in the state of Arkansas. Growing up in a small town, there isn't much to do. My Mother, in an effort to keep me out of trouble, bought me my first camera. From that moment on, my passion, my happiness has been photography. A moment in time, captured forever...what could be more beautiful? Everything around me, inspires me and I get to share that through my photography.





Artist Statement

I took this photo around the time that COVID-19 sent the world into lockdown. I have Systemic Lupus, which is an autoimmune disease, so this particular time was especially scary for me. I sunk into a depression because I simply couldnt risk being around anyone. I felt dirty. I felt lonely. I felt hopeless. I felt like I was on the open edge of darkness so I prayed to the Lord to have mercy. I prayed for inspiration. A light at the end of the tunnel. Anything. Then I remembered that we are never too dirty to be washed clean by the blood of the lamb. The dirtiness was replaced by my reawakened spirit. The loneliness was replaced with my daily conversations with the Lord. The hopelessness was replaced with a fresh new outlook on life. This photo serves as a reminder that anytime I feel I'm too far gone the Lord will always be there to pull me back in. All we have to do is ask.

How it fits into contest

When I look at this photo I see it's brutal yet beautiful honesty. We often forget that we are all the same. All of us are sinners. All of us "dirty" but all can be washed clean in the blood of the lamb. I see a reminder that although I'm not perfect, I can still strive to be the best person I can be. I can wear the armor of Christ and have faith in HIM.
