Pamela Ellis Hawkes

Responding to changing photographic technologies and the increasing prevalence of conventional photographic images, Pamela Ellis Hawkes since 2008 has joined other important contemporary photographers in returning to historical photographic processes to refresh and develop their artistic visions.

Hawkes continues to develop an artistic vision she has explored throughout her career, a vision which questions the perceived realities within photographs; which explores the elusive points of contact between reality, memory, and imagination; and which responds to the ageless calling of artists to preserve and honor the ephemeral, to fix fleeting shadows and transmute loss into beauty.
