Lisa Eisner: A Butterly Fluttered By

22 April - 27 May 2006

M+B is pleased to present A Butterfly Fluttered By: Photographs of the West, an exhibition of color photographs by Lisa Eisner. For her latest body of work, Eisner traveled the West--from California to Wyoming--exploring the spirit of a land that has captivated the imaginations of people since our country's inception. Her sensual renderings of America's settled frontier effectively captures the sense of spirituality in a region saturated with color, history and folklore, presenting an alluring portrait of the West.

As a Wyoming native, Eisner has been documenting the world of the West since the early Nineties. Her fascination and interest in the subcultures, ceremonies and rituals of the West has contributed to two previous bodies of work: Shriners and Rodeo Girl, both of which were published by Greybull Press. This is Eisner's third manifestation in her continued documentation of the subject.

Lisa Eisner is a photojournalist and co-founder of Greybull Press.   She has been a fashion editor at Vogue and Mademoiselle and is a frequent contributor to Vanity Fair, W magazine, Harper's Bazaar, Paris Vogue, GQ magazine and The New York Times Magazine. Eisner currently resides in Los Angeles.
