Playing Eleanor

Archival inkjet print
Edition of 50 from the Portfolio Dayton Visual Art Center (DVAC) CSA 2017

“I was working with a plastic toy film camera, which doesn’t produce a sharp image, and wanted to experiment with my new digital camera. This photo includes the Dayton skyline and landscape superimposed with the interior of my home. It’s inspired by the double exposures done by Harry Callahan of his wife, Eleanor. They have always been among some of my favorite images.”

Amy Powell was born in Columbus, Ohio, and is currently based in Dayton. Her documentary work employs the mechanics of the camera to create intimacy, and even distance, with her family. Organizing the frame and composing a subjective personal narrative has empowered her when she has felt powerless. 

Amy received a BFA from Columbus College of Art & Design and an MFA/MA from Ohio State. Her personal work has been featured with TIME Lightbox. When she’s not making photos or teaching, you can find her tossing balls to her rascally old English Sheepdog.
