Bio

Claire Seidl is a photographer and abstract painter who lives and works in New York City and in Rangeley, Maine. Seidl received her BFA from the College of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University and her MFA in Painting from Hunter College, City University of New York. After teaching in the art department at Hunter College for a decade, Seidl went on to study photography at the International Center for Photography.  She then taught in the art department of Hofstra University for five years. 

"My approach to realism is subsumed by the camera itself, which reveals what we can’t see - in the dark, for example - or what is lost when we shift our gaze.  Many of my photographs are taken at night when our ability to see clearly is limited but the open gaze of the camera dispassionately records everything. I use long exposures which capture the small, even insignificant or sporadic movements of a person, a shaft of light, or slow-moving waves on a lake, revealing a visible record of time passing, of memory enhanced."
