artist bio

Liam Conway lives and works in New Orleans.  He works in several photographic mediums, including wet plate collodion (tintypes and ambrotypes) as well as black and white and color film, ranging from 35mm to 4 x 5.  His early photographic work was primarily spontaneous street shots, but he has shifted recently to more concept-based, pre-conceived projects.  He has been running an art gallery (United Bakery Gallery) in the Seventh Ward of New Orleans for the last several months.
