Erin Mahoney

Erin Mahoney became interested in art and photography when she realized that she could communicate her concepts successfully through the use of photographic imagery. Specifically, she is able to create and tell a story using her keen sense of composition and visual story telling skills. After obtaining her Masters of Fine Arts Degree in Photography from the Academy of Art University in 2013, Erin continues teaching photography at a higher educational level. She exhibits nationally and creates work as a fine art photographer while teaching and empowering students to visualize their concepts behind a lens at The Art Institute of California –Silicon Valley and at Rayko Photo Center in San Francisco, CA. Most importantly, Erin advocates the power of art and its ability to bring to life what artists conceive. Today we share Erin’s series titled Another Me.

Another Me

“Another Me is a fine art photography series that explores Erin Mahoney’s Korean heritage in the form of photo-illustrated Korean fables. This self-portrait series emphasizes the acceptance of her heritage while also conveying past conflicting emotions dealing with her adoption and identity as an Asian American.

This body of seventeen images is photographed digitally to allow Erin to create the fantastical world that is described in the stories. They are printed in colorful gum Bichromate to embody the fantasy and antiquity of each tale. All photographs are presented in archival white mat board and frames to uphold and preserve the craftsmanship of each piece.”
