Biography

My name is Penelope Martin currently living in Florida. Graduated with a BFA from USF, Tampa. I am a photographer who's focus is lyrical material and travel. An influential artist to my work is Alec Soth. Other influences would be myself, everyday content such as locations, music, films, and books.

Artist Statement

My photos are a blend of portraits, landscapes, and still life. I practice many techniques in the studio and with natural lighting. I create lyrical photos using everyday objects and places. My work connects to my dreams and unusual outlook in life. Most of the time I want to use my photos as a portal to my mind to share with my viewers.
