Melinda Hurst Frye



Melinda Hurst Frye aims to slow the process of looking, into an experience of discovery by way of observation, experimentation, and slow investigation of the forest floor. Her photographic practice centers on themes of ecology and place through images made with both scanner and camera of the Pacific Northwest landscape. Hurst Frye’s work has been in a number of publications, exhibits, and permanent collections. She holds an MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design, and a BFA from the Pacific Northwest College of Art. Hurst Frye lives with her family adjacent to an urban forest in Kenmore, Washington, and is represented by J. Rinehart Gallery in Seattle, Washington.
