Tealia Ellis Ritter
Tealia Ellis Ritter lives and works in rural Connecticut. Ellis Ritter's work contends with the intersecting roles of the photograph as personal document, familial marker of time and object with physical surface. Her interests lie in exploring in both a physical and emotional sense the changing nature of identity and intimacy over time. She is presently engaged in a long term project documenting family members in both a representational and abstract manner, with a focus on the physicality and vulnerability of the human body.
