“Her work is influenced by the lush landscapes of Memphis and New Orleans, her collection of art and antiques from the turn of the twentieth century, and a background in painting and art history – in particular the work of Steichen, Whistler, and other Pictorialists and Tonalists.

Wendi Schneider featured in Catherine Couturier Gallery’s “Safe in the Studio” Series
“My practice has not shifted measurably in the time of Covid-19. I turn to nature to dwell in serenity amidst the chaos, for it is there I find sanctuary and respite. I am transfixed and transformed when I capture impressions of fleeting grace in the natural world. Calmed by fluid, organic shapes reminiscent of the elegant whiplash lines of art nouveau botanicals, I photograph intuitively.“
Wendi contributed a post to Safe in the Studio, a weekly series created in response to the pandemic, where artists offer insight into their work and artist practice.

Wendi Schneider Interviewed in “SHOTS Magazine”
SHOTS Magazine featured Wendi Schneider as the designated “Emerging Photographer” for their JOURNEY issue. Many thanks to Douglas Beasley for his wonderful interview!
“I saw your portfolio ‘Evenings With the Moon’ at PhotoLucida and was knocked out by the physicality of the prints — how they felt in my hand, the translucence. I thought the gold leafing was especially effective in giving the prints a sense of both delicacy and depth. That quality is so hard to convey in the two dimensions of print.“

“Rfotofolio” Interviews Wendi Schneider
Wendi sat down with Rfotofolio recently to discuss her career in photography, her inspirations, and the States of Grace series. Huge thanks to Connie Rosenthal for sharing this wonderful interview!
“When I’m capturing or creating an image, I’m entirely focused on the detail and wonder of the subject and process, so all else fades away. The creative flow quiets the noise in my head. The current project finds me often in nature, so that in itself is incredibly healing for me emotionally and spiritually. If I can create work, I feel fortunate. If I can make work that I feel good about, I feel fulfilled. If I can create work that touches others in some way, I feel successful.”
