Captive Light: The Life and Photography of Ella E. McBride

Overview

Ella McBride (1862-1965) was an internationally acclaimed fine-art photographer who began her photography career running Edward S. Curtis’ Seattle studio. She went on to become an important figure in both the regional and international Pictorialist photography movements and she ran her own successful Seattle photography studio for over 30 years. McBride embraced the painterly qualities of Pictorialist photography enthusiastically. During the 1920s she was listed as one of the most exhibited Pictorialist photographers in the world. This exhibition surveys McBride’s development as an artist and her role in Washington’s early photography community through a selection of over 60 of her images of flowers, still lifes, portraits, and landscapes.
