Gillian Keller, a self-taught photographer, was born in San Francisco, raised in Montana and Washington, and attended the University of Idaho, where she studied painting and mixed media sculpture. Continually fascinated by capturing thought (something which cannot be captured), she focuses her painting, sculpture, and film work on transitions of emotion together with handwriting. She discovered photography in 2005 in her college dorm room and played with abstract textures and objects for years. After graduating from the University of Idaho, she moved straight back to San Francisco and was given her first DSLR. She taught herself to shoot using manual and now enjoys exploring concepts of human thought and emotion while living and working in San Francisco’s Mission District.
