LET'S WORK TOGETHER!
OR FILL THIS FORM OUT:
I am a multi-disciplinary artist working primarily in photography to document and process cultures that differ from the one I was raised in. Through my experiences living and traveling around the world, I attempt to document each new culture as a means of processing the chaos that often comes with that level of immersion. Recording daily life in countries vastly different from my own has allowed me to find comfort and understanding through the observation of routines that sometimes align with my own. After nearly a decade of assimilation into life outside The United States, I find myself using the same tools to understand my own country that continues to feel foreign. Current on-going projects include The Improvisers, What Do You Do? (an experiment in podcasting), and The "Immigrants."
Elizabeth Groeschen, born and bred in Kentucky, originally went abroad with the intention to live in a foreign country for one whole year. After a year in the Czech Republic, she went east and spent five years in South Korea. Photography projects, exhibitions, and a book publication kept her busy in addition to the Korean cuisine, K-pop dance classes, and late night singing rooms.
From 2012 - 2013, she spent 15 months traveling through 30+ countries around the world taking photographs, studying languages, volunteering, and most notably - acquiring ridiculously hard-to-ship-home souvenirs along the way.
She currently resides in New York City with her fiancé and their rescue pup, Wallace.
