about

Bridget Conn is a photographic artist who explores the potential of photography as a chemical and physical medium through the creation of chemigrams. Dealing with themes of mark-making, written language, and the challenges of communication, Conn investigates the boundaries of the medium through prints, wall installations, and sculptural works. She received her BFA (2000) from Tulane University and MFA (2003) from the University of Georgia. She currently resides in Savannah, Georgia, USA.

Conn's solo exhibitions include the Kimball Art Center in Park City, UT, the William King Museum in Abingdon, VA, the Art Museum of the University of Memphis, the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art in Augusta, GA, and the Art Institute of Atlanta for Atlanta Celebrates Photography. Group shows include Gallery 1/1 in Seattle, the Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO, the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel, CA, Candela Books + Gallery in Richmond, VA, and Sparks Gallery for the Medium Festival of Photography in San Diego. Internationally she has shown in the Chiang Mai Photography Festival in Thailand, as well as venues in Italy, Hungary and South Korea. Her work has been featured in Lenscratch, The Hand Magazine, Exposure Magazine, Aeonian Magazine, and Focal Plane Journal.

Conn is the founder and former director of The Asheville Darkroom in Asheville, North Carolina. A passionate educator, she has taught workshops at the Penland School of Crafts, at conferences for the Society for Photographic Education, and at numerous colleges and universities. She is presently an Assistant Professor of Art at Georgia Southern University in Savannah.
