about

Elise Kirk is a photographer and visual storyteller. She completed her MFA in photography at Rhode Island School of Design ('15), investigated representations of the family in Spanish cinema on a Fulbright grant in Madrid ('01), and studied documentary film at Columbia College Chicago (BA '00). She was a recipient of the SPE Student Award for Innovations in Imaging in 2015.

Elise is from the Midwest, though she can't quite tell you what qualities make her a Midwesterner, or even where the borders of the Midwest lie. She is based in Missouri and Brooklyn and on the road, where she also produces non-fiction television stories when she's not making pictures. Her personal work gravitates towards familial relationships (inherited and constructed), mythologies of place, and the impermanence of all of the above.
