Location: Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States
Elaine Fisher, Chancellor Professor Emerita, Art Educator and Fine Arts Photographer, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in fine arts photography.
Ms. Fisher became enamored with the field of photography in one of the most unlikely of places – a bubblegum wrapper. On her way home from school one day, she purchased a piece of gum that came with a negative and photo paper that would reveal an image when held up in the sun. Intrigued by the concept, she wrote to the company to find out what it was and upon learning it was photographic printing paper, she headed to a supply story and began experimenting with it. She later got into using tri-chem packs as the ink was permanent and later picked up a camera to explore the wonders of photography. Ms. Fisher continued to follow her passion by earning a BFA at Carnegie Mellon University in 1961, and later an MDESS at Harvard University in 1989.
From 1973 to 2008, Ms. Fisher worked as a chancellor and professor of photography at the University of Massachusetts. During this time, she also served as the chancellor and head of photography majors. As a photographer, her work has been exhibited in more than 150 galleries, museums
