Penelope Breen is a photographer who always wanted to be a filmmaker. Influenced by the bare bones approach of Italian Cinema (Neo-Realisme), the work does not employ elaborate production, tricky special effects or Hollywood style entertainment. Instead, it connects the stories of classical myth, literature and films to create a photographic series frozen in time. By freezing a single image each photograph strips away the complications of cinema and delivers a focused meditation on the way we use images to escape and then return to our lives, transformed.
Penelope is a black and white photographer who divides her time between NJ and Florida. She studied at the Univ. of Okla. and Montclair St. Univ.
She has been photographing for 35yrs. She uses a Leica Monochrom with 28mm, 50mm and 90mm lenses. She is currently studying with Adam Marelli (NYC) and is working on a long term project entitled "Janus" which is nearing completion. Her work has been displayed both in NJ and Fl.
