Santa Fe, New Mexico-based photographer Bonnie Bishop received BA in art, with an emphasis in printmaking at the University of California in Santa Barbara. After graduation she lived in Yucatan, Mexico, discovering, light, shadow, tone, color and movement through a lens. She went on to become an exhibit preparator for the New Mexico Museum of Art and the Art Director for New Mexico Magazine.
Bonnie’s background in design is apparent in her graphic photographs of abstract details. She describes her process as uncovering the intrinsic beauty in the commonplace, such as revealing the perfect design found in natural patterns and restating the visual language of ordinary objects. Her images often fade the line between photography and painting. She strives to encourage deeper visual inquiry.
