Biography

Ellen Shershow Peña

Color, food, people, landscape; my camera provides me with free admission to inexplicable and fabulous stuff.

Photographing is a way of experiencing and understanding the things I see. I draw my color pallet from Dutch Renaissance painters, Gerard Dou, Rogier Van Der Weyden and Johannes Vermeer. For me, the experience of photographing has always been profoundly visceral.

I earned a Bachelor of Fine Art in photography from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and a Master of Fine Arts in photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. My work has been exhibited and published nationally.
