Maureen Price was initially attracted to photography after pouring over a photo history book as a child. It wasn’t until she began a graphic design program at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC that she began to seriously devote her energies to photography. After a year in the design program, Maureen realized that her photography classes were fulfilling her creative needs in a wholly different way.
Upon graduating, Maureen moved to Los Angeles where she continues to live and work. Her images have been published and exhibited across the US. Maureen also works as a voice actor.
I'm fascinated by image making and psychology. I strive to merge those two interests in my work. I endlessly analyze my emotions and thoughts and distill them into images. I find myself creating quiet, reflective, internal, and sometimes uncomfortable photographs.
I’m compelled to shoot the mundane and unnoticed beauty I find in the everyday. I collect these moments like a magpie. My current work focuses on art history, psychology, and the changing nature of photographic documentation.
