Penelope Breen

Photographer Penelope Breen saw The Manchurian Candidate at the age of 15, and her life changed forever. Films became something more to her. Breen saw compositions, tones of black and white and thematic purpose. Photography provided a way to see the world cinematically, and she’s pursued it for 30 years.

In the last six years, she has been working on the notion of thematic purpose within the structure of a photographic project. She explores a set of ideas (inspired by films, books, and poetry) and photographs scenes. An artist’s statement accompanies the project, which grants the viewer an understanding of her intentions. Breen continues to photograph on the street, make portraits and develop landscapes, but the emphasis is on themed projects. Breen cannot escape it — or maybe it cannot escape her.

Breen was born in Oklahoma and lived in New Jersey for 45 years. She now resides full time in Florida.
