Christianne Ebel is a freelance photographer from a multicultural, multigenerational household on the east coast of USA. As she grew up, she was surrounded by stories from all corners of the world. These stories became part of her and caused her to seek out how people, places, things, events, cultures, and silent moments come together to make a narrative. Her first move out of the USA was to Chile, where she had a little camera, time, space, and the world to discover. That is when she became a storyteller - a photographer. For the past twenty years she has traveled the world always with a camera in hand. She turned to photojournalism seventeen years ago, freelancing for various newspapers and organizations. Christianne was the American recipient of the American Scandinavian Society’s 2009 Cultural Grant and recently she created a body of work entitled 'Sverige: a photographic monologue' which was exhibited at the Rydals Museum in Sweden. Currently she divides her time between the east coast of the US and Karlstad, Sweden.
