Christian Rodriguez, Photographer
Christian Rodriguez was born and raised in New York City by immigrants from the Dominican Republic. He spent his childhood traveling between the two islands and cultures. In high school, he attended a four-year after-school photographic residency program, NYCSalt. His passion for photography led him to study at the Savannah College of Art and Design. While away from home, he developed an infatuation with his Dominican background. His photographic work focuses on immigration, cultural identity, and the Dominican diaspora. Currently, he is working on long-term projects between DR and NYC. He prefers traditional methods, such as photographing on light-sensitive materials, and a more hands-on approach to image making. In 2017 he exhibited with En Foco for their “The Apartment Gallery Series” series and was selected for The New York Times Portfolio Review.
Teresa Meier, Artist | Educator
I'm an artist, teacher, native Oregonian, beer drinker, cat lover, wayfarer, and wanderer. My left eye is lazy, I stick my tongue out when I smile, and I cannot figure out the stove top diagrams for the life of me. I love summer, miss the rain when it's gone, and am transfixed by the quietness of snow. For me, a photograph and a concept are an elaborate puzzle that takes me to beautiful landscapes, wandering through antique stores, building in the wood shop, sewing a new costume, assembling props by hand, and painting both traditionally and digitally. In short, photography lets me have it all.
Sean Alonzo Harris, Photographer
Sean's photographic education began in childhood and ran through the Art Institute of Boston, and he studied abroad in Italy and closer to home at Maine Media Workshops. He established his commercial, fine art, and editorial photography career in Maine, Boston, and New York. His work is marked by fine art sensibility and an emphasis on environmental portraits. His creative process draws from various photographic traditions and methods and is driven by an authentic connection to his subjects and clients. He is genuinely curious about people’s lives and the experiences that shape their world.
