Born in 1959 in Utica, New York, Ellen Friedlander is a fine art and documentary photographer who makes the unseen, visible. She graduated from Ithaca College, NY, with a BFA and received an MA from the University of Florida, in Gainesville, with a degree in Mass Communications and an emphasis in Advertising. After college, Ellen spent fifteen years in Hong Kong and pursued her photography while working as a photographer’s representative.

Ellen has had numerous exhibitions, including solo exhibitions in Sacramento and at the United Jewish Congregation in Hong Kong, group exhibitions at the Los Angeles Center of Photography, Saint Xavier University in Chicago, and various galleries in Los Angeles and Krakow, Poland. Ellen lives and works in Los Angeles, California.

“Making photographs fulfills me creatively, it enables me to process complex emotions, and brings beauty into my day. I am consumed by exploration, memory, displacement, and photographic truths.”
