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 and those she’s known – her own, and those she found as a lawyer, librarian and reader.
Throughout 2017, Portland, Oregon’s Blue Sky Gallery will include Marcia’s Infinite Pleasure portfolio in its Pacific Northwest Viewing Drawers. In addition, Marcia will exhibit in shows across the United States, including PhotoPlace Gallery in Vermont; 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 gives back to her community making photographs serving as 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.
