About Wendi Schneider:
Wendi Schneider is a Denver-based visual artist whose lush images illuminate a deep reverence for organic forms in the natural world. Born in Memphis, she holds an AA in Art History from Stephens College in Columbia, MO and a BA in Painting from Newcomb/Tulane in New Orleans. She turned to photography in the early ‘80s to capture moments of models to reference for paintings. Missing the sensuality of oils, she began layering glazes on her photographs to create a more personal interpretation. After she photographed, designed and produced the award-winning re-creation of the 1901 Picayune’s Creole Cook Book for The Times-Picayune, she moved to New York, where she photographed nearly 100 book covers and was a major contributor to the original Victoria Magazine. She moved to Denver in 1994, and after several decades of photography, design and art direction for clients, she returned to fine art photography.
Schneider’s photographs have been exhibited in a solo shows at A Gallery For Fine Photography, The Griffin Museum of Photography, Galeria Photo/Graphic, and A Smith Gallery, and in group exhibits in more than 70 venues including Panopticon Gallery, Candela Gallery, The Center For Photographic Art, and the Berlin and Barcelona Foto Biennales. Her work has been featured in Blur, Diffusion, Lenscratch, B&W Magazine, Silvershotz, Adore Chroma, Edge of Humanity, Photographize, Dodho, Uncoated, Rfotofolio and as a Rule Breaker on Don’t Take Pictures. She has been honored by the International Photography Awards, the International Color Awards, the Spider Awards, the Gala Awards, the Julia Margaret Cameron Awards, Prix de la Photographie, American Photography, Moscow International Photo Awards, Fine Art Photography Awards, the Julia Margaret Cameron Awards, and the Center For Fine Art Photography. Schneider is represented by A Gallery For Fine Photography in New Orleans, Catherine Couturier Gallery in Houston and Galeria Photo/Graphic in San Miguel de Allende, MX. She sits on the executive board of the Colorado Photographic Arts Center.
