Lisa Sibley – Photographic Artist, Educator, and Juror (b.1964)

My fine art photographic work explores the possibility of resolving the foundations of self-identity by looking back through the family photo album. I investigate memory, place, time and the Other self within by creating portraits and self portraits fused with projected vernacular family photographs.

I teach photography classes and workshops, including bookmaking, photo transfer techniques, at Dunedin Fine Art Center, Dunedin, FL.

I live and work in Clearwater, Florida, USA.
