This month we spoke with a kind and talented artist, Ellen Friedlander, who uses photography as a medium. Her story is a fascinating one. You may have heard part of it in a recent podcast we published called Community is Key. But this time we dive even deeper, getting to know not only Ellen’s background, but also her artistic techniques.
At the young age of 22, Ellen already knew photography was what she wanted to do. She worked for photographers and as a photographer in many different capacities and soaked up all the knowledge along the way. Even when she found herself raising her kids in far off Hong Kong, the camera was always a part of her life.
More recently, Ellen has found a fascinating way to express what she sees on the street. Her “Extended Stories” feature multiple street shots compiled into one unified story. These images are fascinating. In fact, it’s hard to take your eyes off of them.
Join us as we explore some of Ellen’s Extended Stories, a few of her street images, and her learning process throughout her nearly lifelong journey as a photographer.
