Elena Dorfman

Elena Dorfman uses photography, video, and tapestry to explore marginalized communities and neglected landscapes. “Identity—sexual, social, cultural, and environmental—is a root element of her work. Her artistic practice which includes recording—through photography and film—the complexity of physical settings by layering dozens, sometimes hundreds, of images, both original and archival, with maps, texts and other ephemera gathered over the course of years. Through this process, she blends nature and artifice, depicting evidence of past actions, uses, and habitation.”
