Gloria Feinstein

Gloria Baker Feinstein

"I've been a photographer since the age of two, when I was given a Brownie Spartus, a treasure I promptly used to make a portrait of my favorite stuffed bunny. That camera became an extra appendage of mine. It still is."

Photographer Gloria Baker Feinstein has used a camera to navigate her way through life for over sixty years. The medium has proven to be a perfect and powerful way for her to help make sense of the world, to put people, places, and events into some sort of order, and to commemorate and preserve the details of life around her.

Feinstein likes to say that her favorite camera is the one she happens to have on her. That can range from her iPhone to her medium-format Hasselblad. The pieces featured here are from a series entitled "Dreams and Other Things," which are made by combining parts of photos she has made with every camera in her kit. The completed images are printed on metal and mounted onto maple-cradled panels.

Feinstein obtained an MA in photography and graphic design from the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Feinstein has studied with some of the greats, including Mary Ellen Mark, Keith Carter, and Andrea Modica. She makes commissioned portraits for her bread and butter and loves pushing the envelope with her fine art photography as technical changes continue to take place within the medium.
