Contributor Bios – November 2018

Grace Campbell is an inspired young photographer with her AFA, currently studying to earn her Bachelor of Art History Degree at Towson University. Her work often focuses on the female form and its associated identity. In her featured work, Women… Turned into Red Birds, Grace was influenced by poet TS Hidalgo’s poem, Funeral Parlor. The line from the poem that reads “Women and men turned into red birds” lead to the birth of this image. As an ambitious newbie in the photo-world, Grace is willing to take big risks in her work in order to accurately represent the concepts she has in mind. Overall, her goal is to elicit a sense of familiar, dream-like wonder within her audience that may invite them to revisit that special cranial space. See more of her work on Instagram @gcam417.
