About Yvette Meltzer
Began taking photographs of my family when I was ten. Next I included friends as subjects and gradually I turned the camera onto people I did not personally know. My photography reflects my interest in people, the narratives of their lives, and the environments that shape them. After working with black and white film in the darkroom for twenty years I now include color photography in my repertoire and work primarily with a digital camera or my I-Phone, having taken almost daily photographs for the last six years. I worked briefly as a freelance photographer in 1979 – 1980 and then photography took a back seat as I embraced motherhood and advanced in my career as a conflict resolution specialist. Now with more time available for photography I have the opportunity to turn my passion from a long-time hobby into a profession.
