About the Artist

Erin Gordon is a conceptual fine-art photographer based in central Florida. She received a BS in Photography from the University of Central Florida in 2011, an MA in Fashion Photography from the London College of Fashion in 2013, and recently completed an MA in History and Criticism of Art from Florida State University in 2016. Her work generally involves conceptual self-portraiture or readymade landscapes that explore themes of identity, femininity, and social justice.

 

In 2011, Gordon had four art pieces purchased by NBC Universal. The custom-made one-of-a-kind paper dresses, which she constructed for her Recycled Fashion series, were on display at the NBC Experience store April 20-22 as a part of NBC Universal's Green is Universal environmental initiative project to celebrate Earth Week 2011. More recently, Gordon participated in two national Nasty Women exhibitions celebrating artists who self-identify as "Nasty Women." These exhibitions functioned in part as an art exhibition and also a fundraising event wherein the proceeds were donated to the Safe Harbor Art Program - a division of the Salvation Army Female Emergency Shelter, and the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition.
