Elisabeth Sunday is the progenitor of “Field Mirror Photography” and first began taking mirrors into the field in 1983. Her work is analogue (shot with film cameras) and therefore have no digital special effects. She designs large mirrors and has them built to specifications that yield unique visual effects. The mirror acts as a second lens, in this two lens system with marvelous and surprising results. Elisabeth is able to play with shapes outside of the normal plain of the camera lens to create images that are truly transcendent of the subject.
Her work has been widely exhibited in the United States and Europe and is in many musuem collections including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Houston Art Museum, The Cleveland Museum of Art, the Corcoran and many more. Nazraeli Press published her first monograph “Grace” in 2012.
