Born and raised New Yorker, Elizabeth Kahane, began a life long passion for photography at the age of 17, when handed a Pentax 35 millimeter camera as a gift.
Self taught, camera at her side, Ms. Kahane is instinctively aware of the light. Taking full advantage of life’s magical moments, framing her view of the world one image at a time. Bringing her sensibility of spirit into the four walls of a frame, while capturing sites and peoples from her favorite places on the globe. Living across the street from and looking out on New York City’s beloved Central Park for more than 25 years, Central Park holds a special place in her body of work; a love affair both figuratively and literally. Ms. Kahane met her husband in Central Park—a case of mistaken identity.
Ms. Kahane’s has always pursued photography as an art form and personal expression. Until now her work has not been available to the general public except as a means of supporting charitable causes near to her heart.
“From a Private Collection,” Photos by E. A. Kahane, on exhibit for sale at Jessica Hagen Fine Art + Design, are personal favorites of the artist. Curated and created for private homes, each image ready to display, printed under the supervision and direction of the artist based on materials selected for that particular image.
