About Polly Chandler
Polly Chandler is a fine art photographer based in Austin, Texas who had her beginnings as an art student at Southern Illinois University before moving to Austin where she remains today.
Her work is largely done on a large format 4×5 Toyo 45CX film camera, and while digital photography is an available part of her equipment “arsenal,” her love and passion for photography will always be film.
Polly has exhibited her work nationally and her photographs have been published in magazines such as Photo District News, American Photo and B&W Magazine.
About her body of work, she says “There are those occurrences that sit with us and settle into who we are. Some are more forceful than others. I am seeking to explore those identifiable instances that seem to slow time, and through my photographs, share the understanding of these moments.”
