CoPA is proud to welcome Irish photographer Robert Ellis to our monthly meeting. Ellis’ project-based work reflects a deep immersion into the communities and relationships that form the basis of his photographic projects. His photography deals with the notion of “home,” working with small rural communities, often relying on inherent or local knowledge to inform a sense of place. Ellis’ photographs reflect his deep respect for people and community, and his quest to immerse himself in a world and culture so as to see, and make photographs, without judgment.
Robert Ellis’s new project Proverbs, which records age-old knowledge in a series of striking photographs, is featured in this British Journal of Photographyarticle. Check out the radio interview, About Proverbs: An interview with photographer Robert Ellis.
Ellis’s solo exhibition, Proverbs, opens at the UW Parkside Art GalleriesSeptember 5, with an opening reception to which all CoPA members are invited on September 12. Details at the bottom of this post.
Robert Ellis is an Irish photographer who completed his MFA in Photography at the University of Ulster in Belfast (2011), having previously graduated with a BA Honors degree in Photography from Dublin Institute of Photography (2007).
