For over 20 years as a conceptual and documentary photographer, Melanie Gordon has been using the camera to document moments that matter and share what resides in her heart and in the hearts of her subjects. Her photographs have been described as intimate and magical tellers of stories. Melanie's work has been exhibited in galleries and published in magazines and books internationally. Her education in Social/Cultural Anthropology, Fine Art, Photography and Film framed her curiosity about life and her drive to participate in culture. Her education as a mother harvested the biggest lessons, however, in how to love and empower children to lead the next generation of artists and change makers.
