Jenny Ellerbe

Here is Home

We are pleased to present our second show of the beautiful, quiet Louisiana photographs of Jenny Ellerbe. Living in the city of Monroe in the northern part of the state, she has rarely ventured more than 60 miles to make her photographs. They are not only an accurate documentation of the land and bayous, people and buildings, but they also convey the moods and feelings of the places and their inhabitants.

Ms. Ellerbe (born 1960) is a former pediatric intensive care nurse. In the last few years, she has become widely recognized for her superb photography and the exquisite quality of her black and white digital prints. Now she co-teaches an annual “Ink on Paper” digital printing workshop for the Ansel Adams Gallery in California. Her first book, Here is Home, was published last year by Scotia Waterous, Canada.

Her photographs are all made with a digital camera, archivally (and wonderfully) printed on Museo Portfolio Rag archival paper by an Epson 4000, using custom made carbon pigment monochromatic inks. Prints made on 8˝ x 11 inch paper with an image size of approximately 6 x 9 inches are priced at $400.00. 10 x 15 inch images on 13 x 19 inch paper sell for $600.00. Prints are in editions of 25. Please add $30.00 matting for the smaller ones and $50.00 matting for the larger ones.
