Located in San Francisco, California, Erin Malone (b. 1963, USA) spends her days as a User Experience Design Consultant while wishing she was out in the field with her cameras. She received her first camera at 10 and taking it to Girl Scout camp, she promptly left it behind.
A few years later and being much more responsible, she purchased her first manual SLR. Photo classes in high school and serving on the newspaper as a photographer, began her foray into “real” photography.
She studied design in college (BFA, Design, East Carolina University) and graduate school (MFA, Design, Rochester Institute of Technology). Photography has always been a part of her life but never the center. She has dabbled in classes periodically over the years but really revived her love of image making with the advent of the digital camera in 2001.
Coming full circle, Erin primarily works with film, vintage, plastic and lenseless cameras and in historic and alternative processes.
Erin’s photos have been shown in group and juried exhibitions across the United States, they have won several awards and are in a few private collections. Her work has been featured in publications such as B&W Magazine, Diffusion, Light Leaks and San Francisco Magazine and the San Francisco PBS produced program KQED Quest.
