Kelsey Ann Linehan is a recent graduate of East Carolina University School of Art and Design, where she received a B.F.A. in Photography. She has been passionate about visual arts since childhood, starting with a love of collage. Kelsey credits her grandfather with sparking her early interest in photography. She recalls an enchanted evening watching him capture movement of the moon and stars using long exposures.
Kelsey spent the spring of 2011 based out of Certaldo Alto, Italy (Tuscany), studying photography, book arts, and history of the Renaissance art period. Her most memorable assignment was stalking Italian strangers and secretly photographing their portraits.
She is most at home exploring the road less traveled with her camera. Her interest in photography ranges from nature to portraiture and fashion. On weekends Kelsey can be found adventuring in junkyards, dilapidated buildings, and coastal landscapes seeking the perfect shot of the uniquely odd. Her work has been exhibited in diverse locales from Greenville bars to Italian castles. Her photographs are on permanent display in Koury Hall at UNC Chapel Hill. Kelsey loves playing outdoors- especially on the north end of Carolina Beach!
