Marcia Mahoney came to photography from a full career as a trial lawyer, followed by a rewarding stint as a community librarian. With that background, she makes pictures that tell the stories she sees – her own, and those she found as a lawyer, librarian and reader.
Through March 2018, ten images from Marcia’s Infinite Pleasure portfolio will be included in the viewing drawers at Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, Oregon. In September 2018 she will show a dozen images from that portfolio at Perspective Gallery in Evanston, Illnois. In addition, Marcia has shown her photographs in galleries across the United States, including A. Smith Gallery in Johnson City, Texas; PhotoPlace Gallery in Vermont; Blue Sky Gallery and Black Box Gallery in Portland, Oregon; and the Southeast Center of Photograph in South Carolina, to name a few. Her photograph, “Final Act, won first place in the “people” category and Best in Show in the 2016 Images of Illinois contest.
Marcia is Treasurer of Chicago’s Filter Photo. She is a member of f8collective, a group of seven women photographers who collaborate to create and show work. A city girl and a country girl, Marcia lives in Chicago, Illinois and Sandpoint, Idaho.
