Tana Reiff in the Print Gallery
Bio: Tana Reiff worked as a teacher of adult literacy and English, communications specialist for the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and instructor of linguistics at Millersville University. She is the author of fiction and folktales at an easy reading level. After studying photography and darkroom in the 1970s, she returned to art photography many years later. An obsession with signs that tell the story of a culture became a book, Signs of Lancaster County: A Photographic Tour of Amish Country (Schiffer Publishing), which led to a deeper dive into rural scenes, abstract nature, and wildflower macros. Her work is shown regularly at CityFolk Gallery in Lancaster and won Second Prize in the 2017 Discover Lancaster Photography Contest. Her Instagram account, @tana_reiff, is a busy place. She holds degrees from Kutztown University and Temple University and lives in Lancaster.
Artist statement: Having worked with language for many years, my mind has taken an exhilarating turn to the visual. On photo outings, I compose images with whatever catches the light and my eye. I like to think I’m making pictures that no one else has seen in quite the same way. This show represents a variety of my favorite recent photographs on paper and canvas.
