The Photography Portfolio of Dawn Herlihy Reilly
Dawn Herlihy Reilly is a photographer currently based in Nassau County, Long Island, New York. In her photography practice, the artist challenges the medium through traditional and non-traditional means, occasionally introducing digital manipulation and collage techniques into her portfolio.
Though Dawn’s portfolio is highly varied, it’s interesting to see how the artist maintains a cohesive style and sense about her work throughout different experiments. Landscapes and architectural elements appear frequently in the artist’s photographs, and though they’re often presented with wildly different aesthetics, there’s an underlying of reflection and exhilaration with natural beauty of such subjects.
In our previous feature of Dawn’s photography, we looked at the artist’s sharp, colourful images -- particularly those of the night sky. Elsewhere in the artist’s portfolio, colour is used to great effect, though the details of the image are sometimes blurred or obscured, lending to a more abstract impression of a scene.
