About The Artist

Marjorie Kaufman’s photography is inspired by the beauty found in both motion and stillness. Her work captures visual poetry in dancers, wild horses, painterly landscapes, portraits and abstract florals. Marjorie’s images command the viewer’s attention through a dialogue of pattern and shape. Adapting a soft palette in her color pieces, she challenges the viewer’s perspective through her differentiated approach to traditional subject matter, presenting a ballerina executing an athletic jump as an ethereal floating object above a calm seascape, or wild horses crashing through a salt marsh seemingly on the verge of trampling the viewer. She employs a black and white template in her landscape photography to present bold images that seem to exist in their own dynamic time and space, while in her portraiture work, she frames individuals in the shadows and natural elements of their surrounding environment.       

Originally from NY, Marjorie now lives in Bonita Springs, FL and Greenwich, CT.  She holds a BA from the University of Pennsylvania and MBA from the University of Chicago.  Marjorie studied photography at the International Center of Photography in NY and has participated in master workshops with Sam Abell, Tony Bonano, Keith Carter, Tillman Crane and Arthur Meyerson. In 2022 her image “The Gardien in Repose” won the Director’s Award  from Photoplace Gallery, and in 2020 her work entitled “The Blue Room” won an award from the NY Center for Photographic Arts.
