Elizabeth Siegfried

The images of Elizabeth Siegfried increasingly have become recognized for their intricacy of detail and sophistication of content. Known for her work in self portraiture and photographic narrative, Siegfried has worked with the historical process of platinum for over twenty-five years and has exhibited her images in Canada, the US, Italy, Germany, Japan and Mexico. In recent years, she has expanded her mode of presentation to include iris and other archival digital prints.

Her work is represented in many private and public collections, including the Aaron Copland House in Cortlandt Manor, New York; the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts in Japan; the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography in Ottawa and the Peter E.
