From the The Live Creature and Ethereal Things series
Website - EllisRitter.com

Tealia Ellis Ritter was born in Illinois in 1978. She was given her first camera, at the age of six by her father. After attending Columbia College Chicago, where she completed her BA in Fine Art Photography, she earned her MFA at the University of Iowa with a major in Fine Art Photography and a minor in Printmaking. Her interests lie in exploring, in both a physical and emotional sense, the ways in which people present themselves and their environment when they know they are on display. Her work focuses on the nature of longing, vulnerability, self-consciousness and image as a construction. She has exhibited internationally, most recently by The New Yorker, at PRC: Exposure 2011, on Women in Photography, at Catherine Edelman Gallery, by Taschen NYC and in Humble Arts' 31 Under 31 exhibition.
