Kelli Pennington

KELLI PENNINGTON is a photographer, educator, and curator living in Portland, Oregon. An avid traveler and observer, Kelli teaches photography with lessons rooted in the belief that as we frame a photograph, so too can we frame the relationship that we have to our own existence. With the tools of perception and perspective to inform the elements, we choose to include or exclude in our images, stories, and personal narratives.

She earned her MFA from Syracuse University in 2010. A founding member of Small Talk Collective, formed in Portland, Oregon in 2015, Small Talk is comprised of six women, who explore the nature of what it means to be a visual storyteller. Kelli returned to teach at Northwest Academy in August 2019
