about

Elizabeth M. Claffey is a photographer and book artist currently living in Albania as a 2012-13 Fulbright Fellow. A recent graduate of the Master in Fine Arts program at Texas Women's University, Elizabeth is completing a Graduate Certificate in Women's Studies. After taking a Bachelor of Arts degree at Earlham College in 2003, where she received honors for her photographic thesis on women's body image issues and eating disorders, Elizabeth attended the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies. While attending the Salt Institute, she further explored visual storytelling and narrative. Her work has been recognized by Yankee Publishing, PDN Magazine, Project Basho Gallery, Abecedarian Gallery, The Eddie Adams Workshop, and various other galleries and publications including The Chronicle of Higher Education, USA Today, The Dallas Morning News, and The Kinsey Institute.

Elizabeth's most recent work explores the relationship between medical practices and life experience. Through images, personal narrative, and installation her creative research shows how individual interactions with medical practices and institutions can have a lasting influence on one's quality of life and how the clinical examination of intimate physicality can cause a person to view his or her body as a foreign or feared object.
