on reverse: a statement about the project and a quote by Lyle Rexer
Brenda Biondo is a photographer whose work focuses on three distinct areas: constructed abstractions centered on atmospheric color and light; conservation and land-based issues; and the way cultural artifacts move from the past into the present. Brenda's work has been exhibited in shows throughout the country and published in numerous print and online publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Denver Post and Lenscratch. Her photographs are in the collections of the Library of Congress, the Museum of Photographic Arts and numerous corporations and private collectors. Her book of photographs, Once Upon a Playground, was published by the University Press of New England in 2014 and is now the subject of a five-year traveling exhibit organized by ExhibitsUSA. The daughter of a commercial photographer/art director, Brenda grew up surrounded by photography and has been making photographs for more than 30 years. Before beginning her third career as a fine art photographer, Brenda worked for a decade in corporate and non-profit communications in NYC and Washington DC, and then spent nine years as a freelance writer specializing in environmental issues. A native New Yorker, she’s been a resident of Colorado since 1999, and currently lives in a small town near Pikes Peak, where the light and landscape continue to inspire her work.
Her work was recently on view at the San Diego Museum of Art.
