Artist Bio

Collected in museums, university and corporate acquisitions, Penny Harris’ work is exhibited nationally and internationally. Her portfolios are broad-based as are her interests. Pinhole photography depicting domestic relationships, landscapes, portraits, and the montage Journey Series show her range of interests about the world we inhabit. She has created photographic stage sets and curated exhibitions involving art, theater, music, and poetry together. Night Walk, a recent forest installation projecting life-sized images on trees at night, blurred the relationship between humans and nature as the ghostly images seemed to emerge from within the tall trees of the Arboretum’s forest. Viewers are challenged to consider their time and place in nature. Most recent exhibit until 2016, Poetics of Space, at the Museum of History in Santa Fe, NM, includes her pinhole image in a 200 image exhibit culled from 6000 pinhole images. Her work in included in the book Poetics of Space, contemporary pinhole photography, published in 2014.
