A Washington, DC native, Rachel Eisley is a photography and art teacher by day, and a galavanting photojournalist by night. Given her first 35mm camera at age 13 by her grandfather, Rachel hasn’t forgotten the lessons of film in a digital age: crop with the eye, apply minimal post production, and capture natural light. She especially enjoys shooting people doing what they love the most, and loves photographically exploring environments featuring industrial decay and abandoned spaces. (She's also been known to regularly snap photos of her beloved mini-Dachshund puppy, Penny.) She received her M.A. in Art History from New York University's Institute of Fine Arts where her major area of study was Early 20th Century Russian Modernism and her minor area of study was 14th Century Florentine Palace Architecture. Her photography has been exhibited at the 53rd Venice Bienalle, Foxhall Gallery, New York University, James Madison University, The Library of Congress, Photoworks Gallery at Glen Echo, The Ellipse Gallery, Artisphere, The Anacostia Gallery, Athom Café and Qualia Coffee. She has been published extensively on www.BrightestYoungThings.com and BushwickBK.com, and has a collection of photographs in the recent book New York: A Portrait by Dr. Jean-Louis Cohen. Rachel loves covering the art and culture of Washington, DC and is excited to join the Pink Line Project in encouraging and investing in the artistic community of our nation's capitol.
