Eleanor Petry is a visual artist currently working in New York, based out of Seattle, WA. At a young age she began taking photographs of her siblings providing a level of connection and comfort in front of and behind the camera. Later, her innocent eye was recognized by a local photographer who taught Eleanor the techniques of analog and digital journalistic photography.
Scattered throughout her work are subtle conversations that focus on emotion, connection, and the loneliness of being human. In August of 2014 Eleanor was in a bicycle accident which resulted in a broken neck as well as a Traumatic Brain Injury. Her experience through facing death not only changed her life but continually effects her art, which among other things encompasses loss, and the idea of departing from love.
