Artist of the Month: Dana Edelson

Our Artist of the Month exhibition series continues with photographs by Dana Edelson.

Dana Edelson graduated from Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania, with a degree in Fine Arts. In her senior year, she landed an internship with the NBC-TV photography department, working with Saturday Night Live and Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Upon graduation, she was offered a position as one of their still photographers. For the next sixteen years, Dana had the opportunity to offer her creativity in providing photography of hundreds of celebrities, and her portraits now line the walls of 30 Rockefeller Plaza. These photographs have been showcased on the cover of The New York Times, projected in the background of a Bee Gees concert, and exhibited in the heart of New York City on 5th Avenue.

When time allows, Dana, who lives in New York City, travels extensively and takes scenic shots in exotic locations. Her true passion is wildlife and nature, and she has always enjoyed documenting the beauty of the outdoors. This exhibition will focus primarily on images from Peru, Iceland, Spain, and Portugal. These locations are all vastly visually different but equally stunning.

Dana’s works, which are available for purchase, will be on view at Gallery on Main throughout November.
