Evvy Eisen (photo by Murray Rockowitz)

Evvy Eisen

I was born and educated in New York City and live and work as a photographer in the San Francisco Bay area. I specialize in environmental portraits, often photographing people involved in socially relevant issues. I work in a classic portrait tradition utilizing black and white film, a medium format camera, and natural light. I do all darkroom work, creating individual, fine art silver gelatin prints.

My work is in museum and private collections and has been exhibited in the United States and Europe.
