“My ability to find features, and notice moments unfolding has allowed me to thrive and better understand the power of community journalism.”

Elconin is a freelance photojournalist based in Metro Detroit. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism from Michigan State and is a candidate for a Master of Science degree from Syracuse University.

This is her first exhibition, featuring a diverse body of work including images from her Masters project, her time on staff at a newspaper in Lynchburg, Virginia, and a selection of personal work. 

Her Masters project highlights four women while exploring what the evolution of women in power looks like in different communities. The central theme of her work is growth and change, which speaks to her own journey of reflection and evolution. The project description: “Women have fought for a long, long time to have more seats at the table. This project highlights four women who each have unique stories of commitment and dedication while creating change in their communities. Each one has broken barriers in her own way to overcome obstacles and use her voice for change. This project aims to show that women are relentlessly dismantling unequal power structures in our society and harnessing newfound female energy and leadership in various sectors. In documenting these personal evolutions, the photographer has also evolved along the way.”
