MARY CIULLO is a fine art photographer based on Long Island and educated at The International Center of Photography in New York City. Intrigued in her childhood by her father's keen interest in the art form, fascinating equipment as an amateur photographer and kind instruction, she developed a compelling interest in photography early on. That interest went unexpressed for years until recently, when she decided to pursue it professionally.
It is both at home and abroad where she finds the quiet inspiration to capture her subject's fleeting moments and reveal the presence of their spirit, soul, grandeur, serene beauty or personal stream of consciousness. Her images are classical in style and through her unique eye, possess an energy that beckons the viewer to feel their emotive qualities.
Her photographs have been exhibited nationally at Los Angeles' 1650 Gallery, Fort Collins' C4FAP Gallery, Middlebury's PhotoPlace Gallery and Essex Junction's Darkroom Gallery. Having been awarded Darkroom Gallery's Master designation in 2016, Ken Signorello notes, as a Master her work "...is consistently excellent photographic work that jurors repeatedly select due to content, concept, mastery of formal photographic elements and creative approach."
"Mary shows a deep passion and a human connection in all of her photography, something often lacking in a photographic art-world over-run by trends, concepts and glitziness," says David H. Wells, I.C.P. faculty member and publication photographer.
