Eileen Rafferty believes in making meaningful work and discovering something new every day. Each year, the ideas evolve or revert, the materials baffle or comfort, and the process challenges or steadies. But in the end, it always seems the photographs, words and relationships are what matters.
Her materials include cameras of any sort, 8mm film, video, family photographs, photo illustrations or images born from her writing and the stories in her head. She also likes old typewriters, unexpected loveletters, the Big Dipper, airplane windows and red dogs.
Eileen currently lives in Missoula, Montana where she makes photographs, teaches, has a consulting business, runs a magazine called Butterflies and Anvils, and searches for all life's big and little answers. She has a BS in Physiology and an MFA in Photography/Film.
