Sarah Elise Abramson
Sarah Elise Abramson is an American fine art contemporary photographer who lives and works out of San Pedro, CA. She is inspired by the things that live in between – the odd, offbeat, and ambiguous – and is drawn to spaces of otherness, the grey areas of life, and things that cannot easily be labeled. She is an avid collector of all things strange and idiosyncratic, and she often incorporates these things in her work. Abramson has shown throughout the U.S. and internationally. Her website is www.sarahelisephotography.com. You can also find her on Instagram @slow_toast.

Yeon Ji Yoo
Yeon Ji Yoo immigrated to the United States from South Korea with her family in 1982. Most of her knowledge of her mother country and the rural farmland she was born on are locked in memories from her childhood. As a result, her work today is indelibly marked by her remembrances and the childlike awe which shaped them. After earning her BFA at the Cooper Union, Yoo became an arts educator. In 2005, Yoo earned her MFA in New Forms at the Pratt Institute. She augmented her knowledge base by earning her M.S. in Environmental Science at the College of Staten Island in 2007 and continues her personal and artistic pursuit showing in New York. Her studio is based in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
