Corrie Francis Parks is a photographer and filmmaker based in Baltimore, Maryland. An alumna of Dartmouth College and University of Southern California, her award-winning films have been exhibited at over 100 national and international film festivals. She combines photography and animation in time-based works for gallery exhibition and installation. Through long exposures and open-shutter camera movement, her still photography and animated light paintings bring a new palette of textures and rhythms derived from the natural world into the galley setting. She has been an artist in residence at the MacDowell Colony and Fundación Valparaíso, a Fulbright Fellow to New Zealand, and a recipient of a Sierra Foundation Grant for her work in experimental photography. She teaches animation at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. You can find more of her work at www.corriefrancis.com.
