Photography is about making pictures, not taking them, about capturing and constructing images from moments in time.
I’ve enjoyed a long love affair with photography. The arrival of the digital camera converted me from an educated observer and cultural critic to passionate practitioner, both as a photojournalist (see www.eleanorfoa.com), and a fine art photographer.
In 2013, my one-person New York exhibition at the School of Visual Arts, Reflections, focused on the visual richness and layers of meaning in refracted landscapes.
In 2015, my image, East River Bridge, was selected for inclusion in the Architecture Collection Book, and digitally displayed at the Louvre, as part of the Fifth Annual Exposure Award.
In 2017, my image, Crossing Bridges, was selected to appear in a juried art show, Better with Age, at Borough President Gale Brewer’s Maggi Peyton Gallery.
As a New Yorker, I am drawn to the drama and color of street life, the geometry of architecture, and the unexpected juxtapositions of urban landscapes. As a photographer, I’m drawn to the magical power of light to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. Following the light continues to be an exhilarating journey.
