Curator’s Biography

Rebecca A. Battle is a conceptual, industrial, urban and American photographer. She applies a film professional background to create original photoplays, editorials, and photographic shorts utilizing her surroundings as ready-made set design to visually tell a story. Her work also brings attention to the mundane or abandoned by documenting the erosion of urban and rural America. The monographs suggest a sudden occurrence annihilated life with hardly a trace of human activity.

By combining a film industry background and photography, she creates original concepts and photoplays, and takes advantage of documenting real life stories that unfold in life. For instance, G-Woman is a photoplay about an FBI agent hunting down a criminal in the 1930s’. Or in the case of Board she spent enough time at Venice Skateboard Park to document little stories amongst the skaters.

During her career as a film professional in Los Angeles, Battle has worked in every genre and medium of filmmaking and is a classically trained pianist. She attended the liberal arts college Wilkes-University in Pennsylvania. You can follow her gallery of work and photographic adventures at http://www.battle-studios.com.
