Artist, Pew Fellow, and 2016 Guggenheim Grantee Eileen Neff makes photographs and prints them large, small, framed or unframed, and, recently, shaped–like her photo of a leaf is shaped like a leaf, which appeared in her 2015 solo show at Bridgette Mayer Gallery, which represents her. Influenced by the spaces around her and the nature she experiences, her photos can be quizzical, ominous, or humorous, even while they are all pretty deadpan. I spoke with her about her current work and about being a writer and educator as well as an artist.
