On Bended Trees

Jenny Ellerbe, a Monroe, Louisiana native, is a self-taught photographer that creates black and white digital archival images with a conceptual strategy to illustrate the historical importance of her surroundings. She makes work within about sixty miles of her home, often traveling on the water by kayak. Ellerbe focuses on the environments as they are and what is developing in its natural state. For instance, On Bended Trees alludes to a human action and emotion by the title and the way the trees are leaning into the water.
