About Photographer

Miren Etcheverry spent her early childhood in Paris, and in the Basque Country of her origin. Her passion for photography began early as she traveled extensively throughout her youth and continued to travel throughout her international career. While the content of her projects vary, Miren is always exploring the role of color. In her current series, “Looking In,” she explores color as it embraces and reflects off objects in window displays, delivering a collection of whimsical and enigmatic images, which bring to mind universal archetypes. In her recent series, “Color in Motion,” she deliberately moves her camera in different patterns while exposing her images; her camera is her brush, and light, her palette. Other recent work includes “Euskadi,” photographs of the Basque Country, which was reviewed in the blog “About Basque Country” (Euskadi). Miren’s photographs have been selected for exhibition in several juried shows: “2013 Water” and “Winter Wonderland,” both at the Cape Cod Art Association, "Five Elements" and "Love" at the Darkroom Gallery in Essex Junction, VT, and the Biennial Art Show at the Bedford Public Library. Other recent group exhibits include the Winter Solstice Show at the Griffin Museum of Photography, ARTBEAT in Provincetown, South End Open Studios and Sophia’s Cafe in Boston. Many of the images from her “Walk at Fresh Pond” series have been featured in publications and newsletters, including the Friends of Fresh Pond Reservation Newsletter and Annual Reports. Her work is held, internationally, in a number of private collections. Miren had her first formal training in photography while a student at Stanford University, where she also worked in video production at the pioneering Stanford Instructional Television Network. Recently, she has studied with Keitaro Yoshioka at the New England School of Photography, Alison Shaw at Maine Media Workshops, National Geographic photographer Michael Melford at the Cape Cod Art Association and Karen Davis at the Griffin Museum of Photography.
